Wanting to be Tom Swift

Tom Swift Jr.

Inside front cover of The New Tom Swift Jr. Adventures series

Back in grade 6 when I should have been doing homework, I daydreamed of someday growing up to be the next Tom Swift Jr. This image was inside the front cover, and really caught my imagination. The back cover of these books reads:

These are the famous books about a young scientist whose amazing inventions promise to be the great achievements of the future

Tom and his father had a secret laboratory on a secluded island where together they invented and built spaceships, flying submarines (!) and go involved in adventures. Hardy Boys for geeks.
