Who else could come up with a plan to save two friends lost in a cave? To help assimilate a new Greek boy into turn-of-the-century Utah culture? To help a friend overcome his disability? Why, the Great Brain, of course. The adventures of T.D. (Tom), as told by his admiring younger brother J.D., are as fresh and entertaining today as they were 35 years ago. And Ron McLarty's narration adds that subtle touch of Mid-Western ambiance. The strength of his narration comes from his storyteller's ability to build each adventure with suspense, warmth, humor, youthful indignation, and the matter-of-fact tone that Tom maintains through each crisis. With strong and confident male roles, this is a great selection for higher elementary grades, and especially for boys. W.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
