by John D. Fitzgerald, Mercer Mayer
But when a few kids nearly lose their lives in one of his pranks, will the shame and fear of death be enough to get the Great Brain to reform his ways?
I enjoyed this funny story about the mischievous schemes of Tom and how he drags his brothers along for the ride. He definitely reminds me of Tom Sawyer, only he’s WORSE!
The wholesome atmosphere of the old town and the simple quiet people who live there, are stirred up by the wild and crazy scenarios that Tom cooks up. There is never a dull moment!
The characters are hilarious, and I loved reading how different people react to Tom’s cunning. Sometimes there are serious consequences to Tom’s shenanigans, but he always manages to come out on top.
I would recommend this book to anyone ages 7-15.
