Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------ENCYCLOPEDIA BROWN AND THE CASE OF THE MIDNIGHT VISITOR by Donald J. Sobol, Illustrated by Leonard Shortall and/or Lillian Brandi. Leroy "Encyclopedia" Brown is a fictional boy detective, the main character in a long series of children's novels written by Donald J. Sobol since 1963. Only his parents and teachers call him by his given name of Leroy (a name he dislikes); the rest of the neighborhood children refer to him as Encyclopedia due to his intelligence and cleverness. But what the kids really love are the “backyard” detective cases. Encyclopedia’s arch-nemesis Bugs Meany is back in two of the mysteries; a simple theft case and something much more despicable. Bugs has finally figured out a way to frame Encyclopedia for a crime, AND have the police catch him in the act! Also included are a fixed tennis tourney, a missing lunch, a stinky boy with mosquitoes, some artistic gerbils, and someone has stolen Sally’s cat, Juno (oh, pity the fool)! What makes Sobol’s books so much fun for the kids AND so educational is he gets them thinking. This isn’t like your average mystery book where your author tries to keep you gusseing until the end and then surprises you. Mr. Sobel intentionally drops clues throughout the story for children to find, and invites them to solve the mystery at the end of each story. At the back of the book are the answers to each of the mysteries, so if a child gets too frustrated, he/she can always check. This is a great opportunity to share a love of books with your child and get involved with them in something fun and challenging. Plus, just wait ‘till they solve one YOU can’t! This is the OVERSIZED softcover stated Bantam Edition from September 1980. Other than a small paper tear at the bottom of the spine and back cover wear and tear, the book is in very good condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date.
