Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

J. D. idolizes his older brother Tom, a.k.a. The Great Brain, a silver-tongued con artist with a genius for making a profit. No matter what the situation, The Great Brain will always find a way to turn it to his advantage--usually, his financial advantage. As boys growing up at the beginning of the 1900s, J. D. and Tom have plenty of scope for their adventures. And while J. D.'s ingenuity may not equal his conniving brother's, as a narrator he is endearingly sympathetic and wildly entertaining. First published in the late 1960s and early 1970s, this classic series has been popular ever since. Now the first three books are again available in hardcover, complete with their original illustrations. Join the amazing Great Brain and his befuddled brother as they continue to captivate generations of young readers.

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1967, the first of eight best-selling Great Brain titles introduces us to J. D., an eight-year-old boy living in Utah in 1896, and his older brother Tom, aka The Great Brain, a silver-tongued con artist with a genius for making a profit. Whether he's charging admission to see Papa's new water closet, the first in town; getting rid of the mean new schoolmaster; or teaching a boy with a peg leg that he is not useless, Tom's great brain turns every situation to his advantage.
