Idea For New Childrens Book Series

I think somebody should update Encyclopedia Brown for the new digital world.
The new series could be called Wikipedia Wayne.  The main character would have
an encyclopeidic knowledge of a wide range of seldom useful topics and he would often 
be wrong, misleading or have incomplete information, much to the consternation of
his parents, teachers and friends.  Following Wikipedia Wayne's advice would often lead
to whacky and zany exploits with a meaningfull lesson at the conclusion of each installment.


For me, this one is the crossover trifecta - it crosses from ugly to cute and then straight into revulsion.
