Donald J. Sobol dies: Author wrote popular “Encylopedia Brown” series – The Washington Post

Donald J. Sobol dies: Author wrote popular “Encylopedia Brown” series – The Washington Post – Oh no! I loved these books, and some of the things I learned from them stick with me today. (Like the fact that a gold brick would weigh 300lbs, and a word with three double letters in a row is ‘bookkeeper.’) I also loved that Leroy’s best friend and bodyguard was Sally, a smart but tough girl who punched out the town bully, Bugs Meany. This grown-up Sally salutes you, Donald J. Sobol.
