More About This Book

Overview

Everyone knew that Tom Fitzgerald, alias The Great Brain, would get into trouble when he went off to school at the strict Catholic Academy for Boys in Salt Lake City. But no one—including Tom—knew just how much. His tongue got him into fifteen demerits worth of difficulty the very first day, but his great brain refused to be defeated as Tom set out to outwit the eighth grade, the superintendent, and finally the bishop of the state of Utah. Whether it's running an illegal candy store or earning a reputation as the fastest potato peeler in the world or introducing the newfangled sport of basketball at the academy, Tom's great brain never falters. And his money-making schemes rise to new heights—or depths—faced with the challenge of rigorous boarding-school life.

    Don¿t Doubt the Great Brain

    This book and Me and My Little Brain are parallel books, which describe events happening at the same time, however, you should read the other first to have things make sense. This book describes the Great Brain (T.D.)¿s first semester away at the Academy in Salt Lake City. This book is interesting from the beginning with T.D.¿s antics on the train ride to the end when T.D. introduces basketball into the Academy, the first Catholic school to have an organized sports program. The trouble that T.D. gets into is good for plenty of smiles and laughs. Amazingly enough this book is still told from the perspective of T.D.¿s little brother, J.D., which allows continuity with the other books.

    #1 book I ever read 24years ago I still remember everything about this book!!

    I was around 8-9 years old when I read this book. I am now 33 years old and I have been talking about getting my hands on this book for years now that I have two children, 10 and 12 year old. They would just love it. I had so many laughs over this book while I was reading, I could hardly put the book down!! Can't wait to read it again once my kids are through with it!
