George--was it kind of a "dated" look to the cover, like the strongman was dressed for the 40's or 50's or something? I remember a book with a similar cover, but don't remember what it was. I read it as a kid, so that would have been in like the late 60's early 70's.

The Great Brain series maybe? There was another series like this, but I can't find any of the books right now. And, well, since I only own about 2k kids books, well, its sometimes a bit hard to find things. :o) But check out the great brains books first.

CLM | 303 comments I think it is this book, Herbert by Hazel Wilson , a cute series about a misbehaving but beloved boy in a small town. I should keep an eye out for these for my nephews.
