Recommended Ages: 9-14
Star Rating: ★★★★

A diamond ring is missing! Has it been lost or stolen? A fire has blazed! Is it arson or an accident? A display case has been broken! Who could be the vandal? Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, it is for you to decide!

In You Be the Jury, we, the readers, sit in court and hear the arguments of prosecuting and defense lawyers. We listen as key witnesses are cross-examined. We scrutinize pictorial evidence – either drawings of the crime scenes, or pictures of vital evidence. And finally we render our verdict – guilty, or not guilty!

No cautions!

Conclusion. Great fun! Less attitude and more brain than the Encyclopedia Brown series.
