Thomas D. Fitzgerald

Don't Bet Against Him. Trust Me.

If you’ve found this page, chances are it’s because you are fan of the fantastic (and now largely out of print) children’s book series “The Great Brain” by John D. Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald’s hilarious, loosely autobiographical tales of a Catholic family living in a small, turn-of-the-century Utah town were far-and-away my favorite books growing up in the 70′s, and have become favorites of my own children, as well.

My family and I have created this site to honor the legacy of those wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated books.
