This was perhaps the first science fiction book I read and I was hooked. After that I read more of the Tom Corbet series, Tom Swift series as well as Asimov, Heinlen, Clark, Norton, and many others.

A little dated but good entertainment. I read this book when I was about ten and this series got me interested in the space program. I have been a part of the space program ever since.

A solid YA space opera. What young boy wouldn't love to read about hunting dinosaurs on Venus? But the emphasis is really on politics--politics that are a little heavy-handed--why is the space federation so hell-bent on suppressing secession? If the secessionist leader wasn't such a crazy jerk, there really was no reason not to let Venus be independent.
The intrepid trio of Tom, Roger, and Astro, crew of The Polaris, are headed for a well-earned vacation on Venus to hunt tyrannosaurus in the jungle, but their plans go awry when they're taken prisoner by rebels. It's one of the best books in the series, as I recall, and very nicely illustrated.
Norman Howe
Another solid Space Opera.

The name Carey Rockwell was a pseudonym used by Grosset & Dunlap. It is unknown who wrote the books, or even if there was only one writer. It is interesting to note, however, that while much of the content was original, a number of scenes and plot points were taken from the television series of the same name.
