Tidd, Mark. Mark Tidd was created by Clarence Buddington Kelland (Scattergood Baines, Erasmus Orson Fox, Septimus Grew, Still Face) and appeared in the nine-book “Mark Tidd” series, beginning with Mark Tidd, His Adventures and Strategies (1913) and concluding with Mark Tidd in Sicily (1928).

Mark Tidd, who can be thought of as an early, child version of Nero Wolfe, is a fat boy with a stuttering problem. Luckily for him he's got a very good brain, and he uses it to overcome the inevitable bullies and criminals he runs across. He edits his school paper, goes into business for himself, and travels to Italy, Egypt, and Sicily, never losing his weight or his stutter, but always triumphing due to his intellect.
