This is one of five Asimov stories turned into a stand-alone book for young readers, this one is a bit of a puzzle for me—I’m not sure that the story, excellent though it is, is calculated to appeal to a younger audience. (Certainly my nine-year-old showed no interest in it when I waved it in front of her.)

Still, it’s among my favorites and the illustrations by David Shannon complement the text perfectly. I’m not sure why any fan (except for the most dedicated completist like myself) would want it, since the story is so freely available in other books, particularly considering its price—but it’s a nice volume nonetheless.
