This is part of a virtually unknown short series by Asimov. The books are fantastically illustrated. I instantly fell in love with this particular story- it simply stuck with me. The books are quite difficult to find, but once you do read them, I guarantee it'll be worth the effort.

Wow, what twists and turns in this marveling story that shines more light on Asimov's invention of Multivac. I am truly fascinated by the path he's taking it on.

This short story by *Isaac Asimov*, available [online](http://www.mcguiremarks.com/uploads/3...) was heart-breaking and well-paced. I was kind of sick of reading of dystopic futures with evil, flawed humans and evil, flawed AI everywhere, and this story is a nice break from all that.

The edition that I have is beautifully illustrated by David Shannon and the illustrations serve to enhance an enchanting book. the story is deceptively simple and very easy to read. But as is often the case with Asimov stories, there is an underlying idea that resonated with me. Long after having read this book, I still think about it and marvel at the bountiful legacy of similar stories from the wonderful mind of Mr Asimov
