Who would believe that the mastermind behind Idaville's spotless police record is a fifth grader? Whenever Mr. Brown, who is the chief of police, comes up against a case that no one on the force can solve, he knows what to do. He goes home and eats dinner. Usually, his son, Encyclopedia Brown, solves the case before the main course is served. Sometimes, however, it takes until dessert.
Leroy Brown, better known to all as Encyclopedia, is the ten-year-old son of the police chief of Idaville. Whenever Mr. Brown has a particularly difficult case, he brings it home for his son to deal with. A missing ambassador to Latin America, the case of Smelly Nellie and the ambergris, a client who wants to pay with an 1861 Confederate silver half-dollar (worth about $5000) - these and seven more puzzling cases keep Encyclopedia Brown busy.
