Children • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1969

At the outset, it seems T.D. Fitzgerald and his Great Brain have reformed, but soon it turns out that T.D. has just been taking a break from swindling, conniving, and plotting. In a style reminiscent of his fine work on A LONG WAY FROM CHICAGO, Ron McLarty narrates from the perspective of J.D., the Great Brain's hapless younger brother. McLarty's performance has a forthright, innocent tone that, coupled with Fitzgerald's excellent writing, helps the listener see what J.D. cannot in almost all his brother's schemes. McLarty also has an excellent sense of timing and pace for the many comic scenes. This is a winner for the whole family. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
