Geronimo Stilton Grades 2-4.
His name was Donald J. Sobol. He was World War II veteran and New York City native who moved to Florida in 1961. Two years later he created his “Sherlock in sneakers,” boy detective Leroy “Encyclopedia” Brown.
Sobol’s most famous creation, amateur sleuth Leroy “Encyclopedia” Brown, was always 10 years old, with each of his books containing 10 short mystery stories, and Brown charged only 25 cents for his detective services; in 1979, Sobol received $25,000 for the film, television, and licensing rights to the character.
Idaville, Florida, doesn’t actually exist, although you can find an Idaville in Indiana, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. So why Idaville? Sobol has never said for sure, but I suspect it has something to do with the fact that his mother was called Ida. I think Encyclopedia Brown would agree.
