Donald Sobol, the author of the Encyclopedia Brown series died on July 11th. He was 87 years old.
Encyclopedia Brown has been a staple for 2nd and 3rd grade readers for decades. Each book features several short mysteries which remain unsolved until you check the back of the book for the answer. I've always considered these books great for reluctant readers and for budding mystery fans.
His last book, Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Soccer Scheme is scheduled to be published and next year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of his first Encyclopedia Brown book.
Thanks for the mysteries!
