Seriously, did my love of science fiction begin with the simple joy of reading Rivets and Sprockets some 30 years ago? Before I read Bradbury, Asimov or about Androids with Electric sheep and sleep, I was enthralled by these two. I must have checked this book out twenty times from the middle school library. My fifth grade buddy Tony and I started writing our own android adventures, inspired by this book.

My favorite book in elementary school. There were two other books in this series and they were all wonderful.
