This book is an example of realistic fiction, because the situations, all seem to be plausible and include realistic characters. The character in this book is a dynamic protagonist, because Encyclopedia is always the "good guy" and he always thinks of the right solution to any problem or mystery.

I think I've read all that my library has; I don't think I'll bother to try to get the rest from ILL.
