One of my earliest childhood memories is checking out a stack of these books from the public library in the small Idaho town I grew up in. I'd forgotten about them until recently when someone posted a review on Goodreads. I decided to get the first book. I really enjoyed it. Tom's (The Great Brain) actions are hilarious and I love that it takes place in Utah. It was fun to reread. I was also surprised about how much I remembered about the book (and most of what I remembered had to do with the food described in the book--home made ice cream, fresh baked bread, etc.).
