I know I read others, but I can't think of them now. Encyclopdia Brown was the greatest, though. I bought a big book of his stories for my daughter not too long ago, and she loved them, too. She told me the stories were very interesting, because they had lots of plot twists. I think she is mighty cute, but I am biased (she is 10).

Also, I had a few Happy Hollister books and a few Bobbsey Twins books that had belonged to one of my parents and loved them, but haven't reread them.
Plus of course the Nancy Drew books, Hardy Boys, Trixie Belden, and Encyclopedia Brown. But when I was in about junior high, somebody started doing updated Nancy Drews, set in the late 80's - I don't remember much about them, except I really didn't like them, and I usually liked everything I read.
By 6th grade I was reading Erle Stanley Gardner (Try reading out loud to your 6th grade teacher from a Perry Mason mystery in 1964. Your mother will get a note asking if she knows you're reading books with swear words in them. Of course she does, she's the one who gave you the books!)
On the other hand, I reread the first and third Trixie Beldon mysteries, The Secret of the Mansion and The Mysterious Visitor and was pleasantly surprised at how well they were written. I enjoyed reading them again.
After that, it was Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden, of course. Then I didn't get back into mysteries until 5 or 6 years ago.
