    This was hard to rate It s an odd, interesting book One tends to assume that this sort of series thing is going to be fairly light and generic, and I haven t read any of the earlier volumes so didn t much know what to expect Further, I usually find Mercer Mayer s art though lovely and polished a tad too saccharine.However, this book is generally much better written than the format might suggest Fitzgerald uses acomplex vocabulary and style than one might expect The book is still This was hard to rate It s an odd, interesting book One tends to assume that this sort of series thing is going to be fairly light and generic, and I haven t read any of the earlier volumes so didn t much know what to expect Further, I usually find Mercer Mayer s art though lovely and polished a tad too saccharine.However, this book is generally much better written than the format might suggest Fitzgerald uses acomplex vocabulary and style than one might expect The book is still easily digestible and short , but it has some meat to it, stylistically and linguistically A factor in the digestibility is that each chapter is essentially a self contained story there is some continuity to the book, reference to things that happened earleir, the passage of time, and so on,...

    I really don t know how Fitzgerald keeps coming up with original stories for this series The Great Brain Does it Again is a familiar mix of Tom the Exasperating and Tom the Helper incidents, with the Great Brain being praised just as much as he is criticized for his antics Though there are new stories, the core of the book is the same as the others, and Tom is equal parts frustrating and brilliant, as always.One of the best moments in this book doesn t revolve around the Great Brain The story I really don t know how Fitzgerald keeps coming up with original stories for this series The Great Brain Does it Again is a familiar mix of Tom the Exasperating and Tom the Helper incidents, with the Great Brain being praised just as much as he is criticized for his antics Though there are new stories, the core of the book is the same as the others, and Tom is equal parts frustrating and brilliant, as always.One of the best moments in this book doesn t revolve around the Great Brain The story of Frankie and his missing rocking horse is heartwarming and a great lesson of sacrifice and sharing Too bad Tom makes it worse at the end, but the contrast is striking and highlights just how crass Tom can be at times Of course, we can t have a bad Tom story without having a good Tom story, like how he catches the people swindling the Indians because he does have some good morals underneath all that greed.I do feel as if Tom gets in trouble a littlein this book than in others His s...

    I am on record as saying this is my favourite children series Smart, well written, well developed characters and a main character that has flaws but also has heart We get to see less of the heart on display in this book and that is a bit of a shame, but there is still one or two chapters that show us the Great Brain doesn t just have a money loving heart My fav chapter is when his actions lead to helping out an Indian tribe and my least favourite one is when he fails to get a child to lose we I am on record as saying this is my favourite children series Smart, well written, well developed c...

    This is probably my least favorite book in the series There are some sweet and thoughtful parts to it, and it s not bad, but overall the tone is not as fun and lighthearted as the rest of the books It seemscynical, and Tom comes acrossmean spirited than he has previously Makes me wonder what was happening in the lives of the Fitzgerald brothers at the point when this one was w...

    The great series came to an end here at least for 19 years until the authors death when his notes made for an 8th book in the series I love the series and this one is no different Many people complain that this one darker in tone with the protagonist beingmean spirited The characters were getting older, and although we don t hear about teen angst in the 1890 s, some of that must have existed Tom iscynical here, but so are the townspeople, who have become used to his cons and go The great series came to an end here at least for 19 years until the authors death when his notes made for an 8th book in the series I love the series and this one is no different Many people complain that this one darker in tone with the protagonist beingmean spirited The characters were getting older, and although we don t hear about teen angst in the 1890 s, some of that m...
