About This Item: 
A prescient and humorous tale of a boy's futuristic life gone haywire with the interruption of ... nature. GO BACK TO YOUR CLASS, says the MiniMachine.The brightly moving thing flutters into Arno's hand. It feels warm. Attached to a foot is a label, reading: BIRD. Two hundred years in the future, Arno's pre-programmed, machine-controlled day takes an unexpected turn when nature intercedes. Arno wakes each morning when his personalized MiniMachine tells him it's time. The MiniMachine squawks at him all day: Eat your Instant Mealtime, Wait for the school jet, Go to your electric tuba lesson, Do not step off the Power Path..... But Arno's curiosity and a little yellow bird lead Arno off his pre-programmed track. Go Back to Your Class! squawks the MiniMachine with increasing alarm. Arno's mischievousness will delight young readers. And Seymour Chwast's illustrations, including his Seuss-like mechanical inventions, are both charmingly old-fashioned and presciently futuristic. A gentle corrective to our infatuation with electronics, Arno and the MiniMachine is a sweet reminder of the joy of nature and following one's own path.
