Encyclopedia immediately knew something was afoot.
All year phoebe had prepared for the defense of her title by wearing the same pair of sneakers. She had them in really disgusting shape.
"I want to hire you," she said, laying twenty-five cents on the gas can beside Encyclopedia. "Some girl swiped my right sneaker."
Only Encyclopedia Brown could run into such as crazy mystery as The Case of the Disgusting Sneakers. Donald J. Sobol's imagination shines in this compilation of short mysteries. The last of the recent Encyclopedia Brown Kindle releases that I'll review on this blog for awhile, Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Disgusting Sneakers had some of my favorite mysteries. I read it more than once as a kid, even though I already knew the answers. You just get a good feeling when Encyclopedia beats Bugs Meany once again!
The mysteries included in Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Disgusting Sneakers are:
The Case of the Fifth Word
The Case of the Teacup
The Case of the Broken Vase
The Case of the Three Vans
The Case of the Rented Canoes
The Case of the Brain Game
The Case of Black Jack's Treasure
The Case of the Missing Shopping Bag
The Case of the Disgusting Sneakers
The Case of the Smuggler's Secret
