Among the author’s goals by writing this book series was to introduce young girls in particular to the sciences and to give strong, positive role model for girls of all colors. Girls need to see themselves as heroes too.
I love that Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo is not your normal everyday action hero. She is young girl who lives with her mom and dad but just happens to also be a surgeon with extraordinary powers. She sets out to fix planetary problems and her family is encouragement for her. This is also a plus for this book.
In this book Dr. Dee Dee sets out to fix Pluto which she accomplishes. With doing so, she teaches acceptance of oneself, something many girls today are also lacking.

“Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo’s Mission to Pluto is an imaginative, creative story for children. Using modern surgery to rescue Pluto in space is enchanting. Young readers will be entertained and educated by Dr. Dynamo’s space adventure. The beautiful illustrations enhance the impact of this delightfully compelling story. I highly recommend it. Alvin F. Poussaint, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
“Dr. Oneeka Williams has gifted generations to come with an extraordinary and imaginative book enabling children to recognize their own scientific powers. Like the precious hands of her lovable main character, Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo’s Mission to Pluto was made to heal.” Stephanie Robinson, Professor Harvard Law School, Political Commentator Tom Joyner Morning Show
“Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo along with her witty supporting cast, encourages parents, teachers and students to read, read and read. The story line is intriguing, while introducing students to science and a great glossary of terms. The characters are smart and engaging. The illustrations are bouncing off the page, like eye candy. This book should be in the hands of every child and at every school on the planet, including Pluto!” Carmelita Johnson, The Knowledge Quest
“My kids and I loved Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo, a strong female main character, and her family’s encouragement of her unique gifts and talents for the greater good. The story provides youngsters with a knowledge of both medical and astronomical concepts such as what makes a planet versus a dwarf planet. A nice bonus for parents of children with special health needs is that Dr. Dee Dee must use special equipment to monitor her energy levels and plug into to recharger her powers. This story provides many avenues for imaginative conversation with your child, such as exploring what happens to Pluto next as well as how Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo got her special powers. It definitely has room to be a series and we look forward to reading more. Go Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo!” Scherazade Daruvalla King, Executive Director, amplifyme
“Not your average super hero saving the world. Among the author’s goal by writing this book series was to introduce young girls in particular to the sciences and to give strong, positive role model for girls of all colors. She accomplished this quite well with sporadic bit of scientific information throughout the book. My only problem is children being able to tell the difference between fact and fiction.” Naila Moon, Just the Stuff Ya Know, Blog
“Stories and books can be the best source of inspiration. Dr. Oneeka Williams M.D. has placed positive messages in her picture book aimed at preschool through early elementary school children.”
“Dr. Williams has injected a lot of science into the story with the hopes of inspiring all children but especially girls to pursue the sciences. The message in this book is clear, “Not even the sky is the limit””Pat Tierney, mrtierneyslibrary.com
“As a longstanding tenured corporate executive who has worked with top-performing Fortune 500 Pharmaceutical/Biotechnology organizations including Genentech Biotech Company, Novartis Pharmaceuticals and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, I know and appreciate first hand the importance of the healthcare field in general and its perceived stereotypical impact and limitations on African Americans in particular. And Dr. Oneeka’s Williams “Dee Dee Dynamo-Super Surgeon on the Go” series alongside the latest release “Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo’s Meteorite Mission” is a mission and operation most noteworthy.
Moreover, being a dual engineer, I am most confident that Dr. William’s uniquely crafted book series will help to propel impressionable, disadvantaged, underrepresented and deserving African American youth to shoot for the stars in pursuing careers in science, the medical field and beyond. Foremost, Dr. Williams does a cleverly ingenious job in creatively naming each of the various surgical tools and equipment such as Simon Scissors, Raoul the Retractor, Marky Medicine Bag and The Charger Family. Then she does a phenomenal job in bringing all of these characters in synergy to create not only a remarkable masterpiece but a stimulating series promoting a love of reading and sciences for many generations to come!!!
Without question, “Dr. Dee Dynamo’s Dynamo Books” and its latest release will positively cut in the hearts of all of its readers and bring a dose of much love to the hearts of anyone desiring to pursue their passion in life. It is most definitely a “must have” centerpiece and a “must read” masterpiece.” Dr. Michele Wright
