The Great Brain 2

This book is about The Great Brain (A.K.A Tom) a kid who has a big brain and is trying to get a lot of money. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve.The story is told from The Great Brain's brother,J.D.

 Tom lives in a family with his younger brother, J.D, his dad,  his mom, and his aunt.His tricks are genius - if you are caught in his tricks there is no escaping.

Tom's dad works for the Advocate, a newspaper.

My favorite characters are J.D and Tom (A.K.A The Great Brain). They are both as they should be and are like real people and work well together.

Tom's best tricks are amazing - here are my two favorites
1. Tom manages to convince the whole town there is a dinosaur in a cave near the town, and then seals the cave up, saving two people from getting fired.

2. Tom is forced to teach a girl and help her act like a girl.His parents must take away his bike to make sure he does this. He gets back his bike but must continue to teach. He tells his dad that he will be picked on bye the other boys he says he could lie about getting payed but lying is worse then getting picked on and gets payed 1.00 dollar (witch back then is like 40.00 dollars now) .

This book is really good, the characters are believable the story is good. I would recommend this book and especially to people who like The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer

The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy-Douglas Adams

This book is about the earth being destroyed and a group of humans, aliens, and robots flying around the galaxy discovering lost worlds, and secrets about the earth.

Arthur Dent awoke to find not only his house was being destroyed but his friend, Ford, was an alien and the earth was going to be destroyed by the Vogons. The Vogons are aliens- why would they Destroy the world? Why, a hyper space bypass of course. Arthur and Ford barley escaped.

Arthur and Ford escape by hitching a ride on the Heart Of Gold. The Heart Of Gold is a space ship that was stolen by Zaphod Bebblebrox. Zaphod BebbleBrox is the President Of The Galaxy. Arthur and Ford fly around with Zaphod BebbleBrox, Marvin the depressed robot, and the computer-  the annoying, too happy robot. They found a lost planet, a planet that makes planets.

I like that the book has some really funny ideas that make you laugh. I like the creativity he put in   the book. At the of the book the only problem I have is the personalities they are to strait and lean to one thing instead of spreading out the charterers a bit .
