The Homework Machine
The Homework Machine by Dan Gutman (AR book level 4.8)
In The Homework Machine, four 4th graders share a secret. The 4 kids are not ones you would think would go together. One is very smart, he created the homework machine. The second one is pretty cool in school. One is just plain old stuck up. The last one is really dumb. These four kids use the homework machine which does their homework in less than an hour and always gets every question right. They get into trouble because the teacher can tell they aren't doing their own homework, especially the cool and dumb ones. During the summer, they end up recording everything they did that school year with the homework machine and other stuff.
I liked this book because it is a great mystery book. I liked that it showed everything in what month happened and tells which person is talking in their own thoughts. I think it was exciting and funny and would recommend it for kids 8 - 12 years old.
