Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
A historical novel filled with humor, compassion, danger, and triumph features the younger brother of The Great Brain as he tries to live up to his brother's legacy. It's a reissue of a 1971 novel that takes place in the Mormon Utah of 1897, and it has lost nothing in the intervening years. Fitzgerald writes semi-autobiographically and with a voice that rings simultaneously true and outrageous. The good news-if you like this book, there are seven more just as enjoyable in the series. 1995 (orig.

    If I Only Had a Brain

    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. In this book, J.D. decides that he can fill the Great Brain (T.D.)¿s shoes, while T.D. is away at the Academy in Salt Lake City. It turns out to be a humbling experience, thus the title, Me and My Little Brain. While some people may tell you that this book isn¿t as good without the presence of the Great Brain, I found this book just as entertaining as the rest. The storytelling is as superb as the rest. You don¿t want to miss this book because it introduces the character, Frankie, who allows this book to still be about brothers. Towards the end of this book, we find out that J.D. can still do some amazing stuff even though he has a little brain.
