When I was a kid, I loved to read Encyclopedia Brown mysteries. For those unfamiliar with the genre, the short stories centered on Leroy "Encyclopedia" Brown, a highly intelligent 10-year-old who solved mysteries in his parents' garage with the help of his tomboyish friend, Sally. Once Encyclopedia had solved the crime, the stories prompted the readers to try to guess at the solution themselves, then turn to a page at the end of book where the mystery was revealed.
Well, I had forgotten all about Encylopedia Brown until recently, when I discovered these hilariously subversive spoofs. They are spot-on. Enjoy.
