DANNY DUNN AND THE ANTI-GRAVITY PAINT

Fanciful science fiction, though not as good as Ellen MacGregor's efforts in that direction, nevertheless makes entertaining reading that may set more young geniuses to hanging up their own signs. Vastly more interesting to Danny Dunn than school work is the project of Professor Bullfinch, the inventor his mother housekeeps for. It all comes to a climax one day when Danny upsets the container of anti-gravity paint which makes objects rise to the ceiling and forecasts the solution to the problem of space travel. There follows a trip to Mars and Saturn for Danny and another young friend but despite the excitement at the end, both boys take fame calmly and settle down to work for a solid future as scientists.
