    "I Scream You Scream We All Scream ..."

    I travel with my 12 year old daughter and 8 year old son to relatives house, sporting events, museums, etc. For us it is a 90 minute drive. I am also looking for books that the both kids will enjoy along the way. We have try probably listen to 12 or so in the past year. Our favorites are The Battle of the Mad Scientists, The Indian in the Cupboard, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as well as Encyclopedia Brown Mysteries. But Encyclopedia is the one the kids, as well as I, wanted to listen to again. Of course the second time through you know what will happen and you HOPEFULLY solve the mysteries along with Encyclopedia.
    We are anxiously awaiting volume 2. Get this for the your kids. You will not regret it!

    "Lots of Fun"

    These short mysteries are great for the younger listener (5-8). Even after hearing the stories a few times, my 2 still like to accompany Encyclopedia on his detective work. Good narrator.

    "Fun for everyone"

    We love this selection! It's fun for our seven year old and her little brother (age 5). If you want to be interactive they have paused between the mystery and the solution -- so you can stop the story for a discussion. Great for repeat listenings. Good narration and sound quality.

    "Still fun after all these years!"

    I enjoyed reading Encyclopedia Brown when I was in elementary school, and now my daughter does too. This audio version allows us to match wits on car trips. Each story is short, so even if we're just headed to the grocery store, we can usually get one in.

    I just wish they'd offer more of these books on Audible!

    "No Mystery Why I Loved This..."

    I remember finding this book in the bargain bin of my elementary school library. It had a very beat up cover, and a well worn pages. I bought it for $1.00 and read it over and over. Now I admit that even though I'm "all grown up" this was truly a good pick for myself.

    I really enjoyed this Audible book. And I've given it 5 stars not only for the ol' trip down memory lane but for the quality of narration by Jason Harris, who really makes me feel like I'm back in the 1960s.

    "Bite sized reading"

    Great thing about Encyclopedia Brown is that they're all bite-sized stories that can draw in the reluctant reader. Kids love the good vs. bad aspect, all done in a fun, thought-provoking way. Each case provides a chance for a child to challenge themselves, as they try to figure out which clues point to the solution to the crime.

    "Excellent to listen to with kids!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My daughter and I listen to this as she goes to bed. She loves the various stories. I think she has listen to the whole book more than 3 times since we bought it a few weeks ago.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Reminds me of my childhood.


    Have you listened to any of Jason Harris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no
