      Safe. Wholesome. Creative. Not terribly excellent but good for boy readers.

      Wonderful! Amazed how much I remembered from childhood. I wish we had enough copies to read this with the Vintage Book Circle.

      Since 1960, boys and girls alike have enjoyed reading about the adventures of Alvin Fernald and his Magnificent Brain. Whenever his brain clicks into action, a glassy stare comes into Alvin’s eyes and not even his troublesome sister, lovingly known as “The Pest”, can distract him from his work. Whether it’s creating the Foolproof Burglar Alarm for his bedroom door or developing the Sure Shot Paper Slinger for delivering newspapers from his bike, Alvin is always in search of another marve [...]

      Alvin, age 10, is an inventor. Sometimes his inventions work very well the first time such as with the One-Jerk Bed Maker and sometimes they need some tweaking as with the Sure Shot Paper Slinger. It's the Paper Slinger that gets Alvin involved in a mystery this time. The newspaper he's trying to deliver ends up breaking Mrs. Huntley's window but Mrs. Huntley doesn't seem to be anywhere around. Who are the strangers who have left hamburger wrappers on her table? (Mrs. Huntley is vegetarian.) WHE [...]

      My 4th grade teacher read books to us, spending maybe 30-45 minutes most days to read a chapter or two. When she got to this one, I was hooked within a few pages of hearing about those marvelous inventions. Having a creative, inquisitive, inventive mind, this was right in line with what I was interested in. After she finished, I waited for the first opportunity for it to become available in our classroom library so I could check it out and read it again myself. I did this often, finally ordering [...]

      (Genre:children's fiction) Cute story of a boy inventor and his little sister (the Pest) and his best friend. These children stumble into a mystery and Alvin uses his great inventor's mind to solve it. The adults/parents are mostly absent in the story in order for the plot to be feasible, which I felt was rather unrealistic, though necessary for the story to move where it did. It reminded me of "The Mad Scientist Club" (another children's book written in a similar genre), but it never quite matc [...]

      Alvin Fernald, the genius inventor of Riverton, Indiana gets into all kinds of trouble when he tests out his new invention for delivering newspapers. Yeah, it's cheesy "Boys Life" type of adventure, but if you're an impressionable young teenager it may be exactly the thing you're looking for to inspire you to become an inventor. Before there was Cory Doctorow there was Alvin Fernald.

      couldn't skip the chance to be the first to review this one.i read it when i was eight, and remember reading it over and over again gripping and thrilling and so much fun.i can still remember some of the crazy stuff.Alvin's alarm clock that squeezes the toe to wake him up, and the paper throwing machine on his bike still makes me smileing book.

    • Allison Tebo says:

      Hysterical, fun, read.I was laughing out loud. content: The kids tell 'white lies', or are disobedient to their parents. Alvin can be a little mean to his sister, but this gets resolved at the end, which was a welcome change as opposed to the never ending sibling rivalry!

    • John says:

      This was the first book in this little series that I read. It had the best illustrations (I read it for the first time in 2nd grade) and the later ones didn't compare, story- or picture-wise. I recommend parents give it to their kids if they show early scientific/inventive tendencies!

    • Robin Dawes says:

      I read this when I was very young and it has stayed with me for 50 years. I remembered Alvin's ingenious inventions but I could never remember the title until recently when someone I know picked it up for her grand-child. I was very happy to reconnect with it.

    • Maria Theresa says:

      I love the Alvin Fernald books, and this was no exception. I especially like the new invention in almost every chapter of this book!

    • Ashley says:

      Great book for kids who love science. I really enjoyed all the crazy inventions. Shows kids imagination!

    • Brock Snyder says:

      One of my favorite books of all time. I read this as a child and am now in my 40's. I still own a copy of this book. My kids have read it. I wanted to be Alvin.

    • Ghoover318 says:

      A great boy's book.

    • Richard Downey says:

      This is one of my favorite books from my youth. Alvin, Shoie, and the Pest solve the mystery of the old Huntley mansion using Alvin's marvelous inventions. Awesome!
