The Homework Machine: Chapter 1- Characters

I thought this book was a great one. It was very full of action and it's also funny. The author has written another book with the same characters. It is called Revenge of the Homework machine. I reccomend you read this book too, if you like the Homework Machine. This book doesn't have any pictures but it's a very descriptive book. All readers between the ages of 9 and 12 would enjoy this book.

We picked up this book because it is on the 2016-17 NC elementary school Battle of the Books. J really enjoyed this book and simply couldn’t put it down. For her, she felt that this was one of those books where you really felt like you were a part of the story. She felt that she was right there in the story, seeing it through the characters’ eyes. One reason for that sense of perspective comes from the fact that you read all of the actions from various perspectives. Whereas focused on a long period of time from one character and then repeated that whole segment from another character’s perspective, The Homework Machine, switches from paragraph to paragraph in the four main characters’ perspectives as well as the teacher, two mothers and a few classmates.Gr 4-6-Brenton, Snik, Kelsey, and Judy thought that they had disposed of their homework-completing computer at the end of The Homework Machine (S & S, 2006), but the device apparently isn't quite off-line yet. Brenton remembers that the main power chip was still live when they pitched the machine into the Grand Canyon, and the friends believe that the powerful component has never been recovered. The kids decide to retrieve the chip, but discover that two old adversaries are also interested. Ronnie, the school bully, wants to build a similar contraption, and con-man Richard Milner has a more sinister scheme in mind. When the children's teacher proposes a treasure-hunting expedition into the heart of the canyon, the four are excited, but they find that Ronnie and Milner have the chip and are also after the Egyptian artifacts that are rumored to be hidden in the park. Slightly darker than the first book, Return also has some welcome touches of humor, particularly concerning the online religious cult the kids start as a prank. There is a lot going on here-lost Egyptian hoards, Japanese gangsters, even model rocketry, but it all comes together. The unconventional and challenging narrative consists entirely of excerpts from police interviews (conducted after the treasure-hunting expedition, when one character is killed) that depict the action from multiple viewpoints. Familiarity with the first book is helpful but not essential. An exciting choice.-Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL (c) Copyright 2010.

Who are the main characters in the book the homework machine

I like the book because Dan Gutman made up a homework machine and I think that is pretty cool! What kid couldn't use some help with his homework? Brenton is an interesting character because he seems very smart, but he just uses the homework machine. My favorite part was how Brenton made the homework machine and soon they all joined together to become friends. There is something unique about the book. Instead of chapters, the author uses paragraphs with the character's names in bold print.
