    I read this as a young boy and just recently had to re read it as part of my job we re prepping them for e book releases This is the third installment of the Danny Dunn boy scientist inventor note, NOT boy genius series and switches up the formula by introducing the third member of the cast, Irene Miller, in this book her Dad just moved to Midston, you see alongside Danny and his bosom companion the thin, dour poet Joe Pearson.In this installment, children reading this book will learn about comp [...]

    This book came out in 1958 but I still fondly remember my introduction to computers through it s pages when I was in first grade back in 1963 and I dreamed of actually owning my own computer It wasn t to happen for 17 years before I was the proud owner of an Atari 400 But I think the day that I brought that home I was still thinking about the fun Danny, Joe and Irene had with Miniac.

    This old middle grade book was okay, but in the age of the Internet and Google, it comes across as outdated.ContentLanguage Gosh 11 times goodness twice gee four times drat doggone it dope as an insult twice sorehead stupid ConsumerismSuperman Coca ColaMiscellaneousCheating on homework an adult smokes a pipe

    Ah, the Homework Machine A machine that works out arithmetic problems and grammar questions perfectly, and even does social studies homework Who wouldn t want one Danny and Joe meet Irene and the three of them immediately are up to scientific mischief, using Professor Bullfinch s new computer to do their homework for them.Remember that this book was written in 1959 when computers were real computers, taking up an entire large room, with tape drives, blinking lights and lots of buttons The idea o [...]

    I remember really liking these stories when I was young Now, the fact that they were written in the 50 s is pretty evident Still, an easy, fast, and pretty fun to read story.

  6. Colin

    I think this was an old book of my half sister s or my mom s that I found as a kid, originally published in the late 50s I liked the invention science factor back then, and mightily wished for my own homework machine As an adult, I was pleasantly surprised to find a feminist element with the main girl character also into science , and amused by the advanced computer that only took up half a room and the dialogue of Gee, that s swell and such.

  7. Joan

    Boy is this one out of date A table with a computer filling the entire tabletop, called Minimac Minny for short and Mini because it is so tiny Which it actually is compared with The Mark One mentioned in the book which filled an entire room Kids may consider that science fiction in the opposite way because why would anyone bother with a table sized computer when they could just pull out their smart phone But when you realize it was written in 1958, you can see it actually is pretty advanced work [...]

    Before personal computers , computer graphics, and the net, I read this book, and had this book read to me by my 6th Grade teacher Mr Schott And one of the things I recall was that Danny had to do just about as much work to get the homework machine to do his homework, that he might as well have done his homework.That gave me a nice edge later in junior high school, high school, college, graduate school, and the real world Later, I would hear about hobbyists, and even 8th graders using computers [...]

    I loved Danny Dunn books when I was young I just read this one to my three youngest and it was a hit They kept begging for one chapter every time I read I m not sure how much of the science they got, but they sure loved it when Irene pushed Snitcher in the mud puddle

  10. Adiva

    I think that it was wrong for Danny, Irene and Joe to tell a machine to do their homework for them or to use it to help them for their homework.What kind of kid would do that Well, I know who Danny and Joe would.I think that Irene was right that it is not fair for the other kids.I think that Joe is lazy.

  11. Sarah

    Apparently this was first published in 1958 and it s oddly prescient The protagonist and his friends are tasked with babysitting an electronic brain computer while the professor is away Their job is to feed information into its memory banks but soon enough Danny gets the clever idea that this machine can help him to do his homework While the technology may have seemed like science fiction 50 years ago, it s commonplace today The kids interact with the computer via a voice interface that receives [...]

  12. Lenny Husen

    This was a corny book, but WOW, it stuck with me The lessons these kids learn about computers and how they do all your work for you spoiler alert or NOT, still hold true today in 2014 This was written in circa 1955 and was even dated when it fell into my chubby little hands at age 8 But I STILL remember it, and it was a really good book I actually think about it from time to time, and it makes me laugh as I struggle with our EHR every single f ck ng shift Actually, I m getting quite fond of the [...]

    Danny and Joe, and new friend Irene, are in charge of Professor Bullfinch s newly invented Miniac computer, which miraculously is capable of producing junior high homework quality printouts from voice commands.At over 60 years old, this story has run out of steam It still made a nice, nostalgic trip back to the Danny Dunn stories of my 5th grade year this was an early story I had not yet read I would recommend it now only for completeness, as there are other Danny Dunn stories that kids can find [...]

  14. Greg

    This came into my sphere of reading when I was about 10 12 years old, and I remember really enjoying it The thought of using a computer to help with my homework was really attractive, even though I recognized even then that progrmming it would take far work than just doing the homework myself Still, it was an enticing thought, and appealed to my very juvenile imagination.

  15. Betty Cross

    Great fun I have fond memories of the misadventures of Danny, Joe, and Irene as they program a computer to do their homework for them Professor Bulfinch s computer was an advance for the time of writing In the 1950s, a computer took up a whole room, but his machine would fit in a corner of the office, though it was too big to qualify as a Desktop.

  16. Elizabeth

    This book was read to me when I was about three Lo these many decades later, I still had a vague memory of the plot I ve been trying to find the name of the book for years and finally succeeded I think a book deserves at least five stars for being so memorable Now, I m going to see if the local library still has a copy so I can read it again.

    Found a few of these Danny Dunn books in my favorite cousin s room the summer I was 8 I think and became obsessed with them Back then it was hard to find books about science adventure where the girl was best friends with 2 guys she was the brainy one Irene was my Hermione Harry Potter Don t know how well current 8 year olds could relate to Miniac.

  18. Daniel R.

    An unexpected and amusing children s read that I received as a birthday present Definitely written to convey moral messages about cheating and friendship Given its 1958 publishing date it had a realistic female character interested in science although confined to the trope of choosing between two males and a realistic portrayal of a computer and its limitations.

  19. Kbreach

    Still as great as it was when I first read it in 1972 This time around I read it to my 10 year old who was enthralled with how advanced The authors ideas of computer technology were so many decades ago he said mom it s like Siri

  20. Cd

    Cute series about boy growing in scientist s house, having loads of adventures Just make sure that the particular volume you re taking out doesn t happen to be about dinosaurs or something like that

  21. Andrew kurosaki

    This book is really cool Danny Dunn with his cool inventions are really cool Especially if you re a boy interested in inventions.

  22. Alex Melnick

    Great kids sci fi novel about computers from 1958, back when most people had never seen one It got across the idea that computers aren t magic, and that getting a computer to do a task requires thoroughly understanding the task yourself This lesson sat in my subconscious for years, and made learning to code much easier than it would have been if all I d read and seen were typical kids sci fi stories.
