Danny Dunn and the Homework Machine - Raymond Abrashkin, Jay Williams - Google Книги
Of course, it's not actually a new book. I remember liking the books but have no specific memories of any of them, except for this one, which stuck with me for all these years because of a particular point it made.

As this particular book highlights, the professor's inventions include a special new kind of computer, which he keeps in his home laboratory. While today it hardly seems remarkable to have a computer in one's house, let alone one that can do everything that this one can, an important thing to remember is that this book was written in , before computers were anywhere nearly as powerful and ubiquitous as they are today.
