Loved this book as a kid. I thought it was a great tale of adventure. Bought it and re-read it as an adult, and while it was cute, it's not something I would pick to read to a kid over all of the other possibilities out there. It's not as good as many other kid's books, and as an adult it was hard to get past some of the "science" that was complete nonsense, and it wasn't as adventure-y overall as I remembered.
