    fun to read

    After we read the first book in this series, The Great Brain, which contains stories about Tom D. Fitzgerald, middle son of a newspaper publisher in 1896 Adenville, UT, who claimed to have a "great brain," as told by his younger brother John D. Fitzgerald, we just had to get another book. More Adventures of the Great Brain picks up where the first book leaves off, following Tom and his activities through a year until he graduates from sixth grade and gets ready to go to the Academy in Salt Lake City with his older brother Sweyn. Tom's "great brain" is good at solving problems, such as helping the wild "Britches Dotty" fit into town life, making sure the family does not get too lost when on a fishing and hunting trip in the mountains, cracking the case of the town bank robbery, giving the local dog "Old Butch" a fine funeral, and figuring out who the Ghost of Silverlode is. However, it also gets him into occasional trouble.
    Tom's behavior should not be considered exemplary or imitative. In fact, in chapter one we learn that Tom's reformation at the end of The Great Brain was just a ploy to make his parents think that he had "turned nice" so that they would get him a new bike for Christmas. However, there are important lessons that can be learned from Tom's mistakes regarding what should be one's attitude toward and treatment of other people. Also, the book provides some interesting insights into what life was like in the "Old West" of the late 1800's. In any event, it is fun to read. There are several common euphemisms used.

    More Laughs & More Fun

    I read these books as child by checking them out of a library. Now almost 20 years later, I have decided to reread them all starting from the beginning. While, the first book ends with T.D., aka the Great Brain, supposedly reformed, after he receives that shiny new bike for Christmas he¿s back at it again in More Adventures of the Great Brain. One of my favorite chapters in this book is the one about Old Butch because it shows T.D.¿s feeling side and allows his character to have depth beyond his tricks. Much of this book is typical of the Great Brain and is good for some laughs. I recommend all the books of this series to children and adults alike.
