"Encyclopedia Brown is a series of books featuring the adventures of boy detective Leroy Brown, nicknamed "Encyclopedia" for his intelligence and range of knowledge. The series[1][2] of 29 children's novels was written (one co-written) by Donald J. Sobol, with the first book published in 1963 and the last published posthumously in 2012. In addition to the main books, the Encyclopedia Brown series has spawned a comic strip, a TV series, and compilation books of puzzles and games.

Sobol's first Encyclopedia Brown book was written in two weeks; subsequent books took about six months to write."

I purposely misspelled Sobol's name for his sake. My image is fun, but not as fun as his books for children.

I searched through my archives... found this and thought it was fun for a child's book.

As usual, last day of challenge... and I had nothing. BUT, four hours of searching and editing and... this time I'm finished seven hours before rollover. Ha!

Excellent composition and layering of the design elements and attention to details like the "sticker".
