Review:
Harkening to a time when children were left to their own “play” devices, the turn of the century Utah setting is as much a character in this book as the characters themselves. And what “characters” they are. Told by the younger brother J.D., we learn about the eldest brother S.D. and the clever schemer par extraordinaire, Tom D. Fitzgerald a.k.a. “The Great Brain.” Each wild adventure is a test of T.D.’s cleverness and manipulative skills. One cannot help but root for this young con artist, sharing in the admiration of his younger brother. Ron McLarty, though occasionally slipping into a Northeastern accent, gives a hearty wit and simplicity to the reading
