* "J. D. is ready to apply all the tricks he has learned . . . As amusing as the exploits of his brainy older brother!"--School Library Journal
About the Author
John D. Fitzgerald was born in Utah and lived there until he left at eighteen to begin a series of interesting careers ranging from jazz drummer to foreign correspondent. His stories of The Great Brain were based on his own childhood in Utah with a conniving older brother named Tom. These reminiscenses led to eight memorable Great Brain books. John D. Fitzgerald also wrote several best-selling adult books, including Papa Married a Mormon. He died in Florida, his home of many years, at the age of eighty-one.

From the perspective of the overall arc, I like this book quite a bit...it does actually develop Tom's character even though he's largely absent. It shows that, to use a modern cliché, that Tom is a master of three dimensional chess while his victims are often playing checkers (if that makes sense). John in particular quickly finds out that running these schemes requires a certain worldview that John simply doesn't have. This insight, solidified in the fourth book in the series, I think helps foreshadow the events near the end of the series.
As with the other books, this is a well written book easily approachable for older elementary school students and above. I'm happy this is still in print so I can introduce my kids to the series at roughly the same age as when I first discovered it. A good series written by an author at the top of his game.
