This book trailer for the Encyclopedia Brown series was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Mysteries theme. For more on Encyclopedia Brown, check out our “Get a Clue” podcast.

In honor of our mystery theme, we set out to create an an EXTRA mysterious Mystery Book Theater for Donal J. Sobol’s Encyclopedia Brown series.

How could Mystery Book Theater possibly get even more mysterious? It’s a mystery! And how many times can we use some form of the word “mystery” in this post? Hmm, that’s a mysteriously mysterious mystery that will require some time to ponder… No, not really — the answer is 12 so far.

Getting bored of this? Well, what are you waiting for? Watch the mysterious video, already!

PS – Count now at 13. Could we possibly be more annoying? That’s no mystery — the answer is: YES! Just listen to the podcast!

PPS – Total count: 14.
