This book solves the problem of the Great Brain aka TD¿s return to the Academy by building an Academy right in town. Now, the story can take place in our favorite town, Adenville, and utilize all of our favorite characters. TD works under the guise of being reformed throughout this book, but still ends up with all of the other kids¿ the money. He¿s also able to word his tricks in such a way that he can¿t be caught or punished. It¿s funny because while JD, TD¿s little brother, has been swindled the most he miss the excitement and even encourages TD in his money-loving ways.
