I L000000000000000000000000VE this book so much!

Theses are just some of the ten brain-twisting mysteries that Encyclopedia Brown must solve by using his famous computerlike brain.

This book was really fun to read, and I loved figuring out the answers to all the mysteries! Some are pretty difficult, but others are easier.
