Read in January, 2005

I'm a public librarian who likes science fiction, and a lot of parents ask me to recommend a good science fiction novel for their children. The problem is that while there is a lot great fantasy for children, there does not seem to be a lot of really great science fiction. Here is one of the few I can recommend.

This novel is probably the most famous of Heinlein's juveniles and by far my favorite of his work.

It's a bit dated, and probably copied in film a lot, but it still has a lot of unique charm.

It only sags when Heinlein starts to go into scientific detail about spacesuits, which for all I know might be dated information. Putting that aside this is a fun romp.
