In this post, we will see the book Electronic Boy From The Portmanteau by Yevgevy Veltistov.
About the book
Boys and Girls,
You’ve probably guessed what Electronic is? Right, he’s a boy-robot! But the cream of the joke is that, by sheer chance, he turns out to be the live double of a schoolboy, Sergei Cheesekov. They meet and make friends – and immediately fantastic and funny adventures happen to them both. Sergei quickly gains fame as a World Champion runner, an animal-trainer, and an honor pupil at school – but that’s enough. Read the book yourselves, and join Sergei and Electronic at a math lesson in a Moscow school, see the circus with them, and visit the cybernetics laboratory of Professor Gromov. Finally, when the cat’s out of the bag, and their secret is discovered – join the children who teach Electronic to laugh. Wouldn’t it be fun if you had a friend like Electronic?
About the Author
Yevgeny Serafimovich Veltistov was a Soviet writer and screenwriter, who wrote a series of science fiction tales for young readers.
He was born into the family of a military engineer in 1934. In the second year of the Great Patriotic War, he came to study at school. There were few books. There are even fewer notebooks. I wanted to read very much. When asked who you will become, he replied: “A seller of children’s books. To read everything.”
Then he changed his mind. I decided to become a journalist. It was a firm decision. Graduated from the Faculty of Journalism of Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov in 1956. He began to work – first in newspapers, then – as a department editor in the popular magazine “Ogonyok”. He was in charge of feuilletons and all sorts of things that were printed on the last pages.
He brought the manuscript of the first book to the Children’s Literature publishing house. Soon she saw the light. Others saw the light behind it.
