David Topman and Chuck Masterson were contacted by Dr. Horace Frobisher who needed help to stop a young man, Prewytt Brumblydge, from his experiments with his invention, the Brumblitron, a device to produce energy cheaply and convert sea water to fresh water.

Good book in the Mushroom Planet series. Would appeal to preteens and is actually pretty astounding in that it was written before any Americans made it into space. Lots of good suspense and of course the same cool characters from the other books and some new ones as well. Good light reading and a good continuation of the series. Two more to go and I've read them all. Recommend to one and all.

Part of the Mushroom Planet Series, which got me interested in Sci-fi at a young age. See my review of the first book, "Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet". Kept me interested enough to continue with the series.

I loved these as a child and I love them at least as much now. I'm thoroughly enjoying reading through all five books.
