A lovely little story about two boys recruited to build a ship and save the Mushroom Planet. Written by a woman in 1954: why, oh why didn't she make at least one of the adventurers a girl? ( )

I read this as part of Dead Writers Society genre challenge for March. This was a really cute and quick read so I am glad that I finally read it yesterday.

The book follows two friends, Chuck and David who respond to an ad that requests that a boy or boys build a spaceship. The two boys take up items that they find and build a spaceship and go off to meet the man who put the ad in the paper, Mr. Tyco Bass. Once they meet Mr. Bass and hear about the mysterious planet that he wants them to take off and explore, the story picks up.

With books like these, I often think they are easier to read as a child. As an adult your first impulse is to scoff at two kids being able to build a spaceship and hurtle into space and walk out onto a planet with no oxygen about. Since this book was not written for me, I thought it was perfect for someone between the ages of 6-9. I think if I read this at age 10 I would have probably said cute story and went back to my Nancy Drew books.

The setting of the "Mushroom Planet" was pretty funny. I liked the character of Ta who acted imperious, but we quickly find out has a soft heart.

This book is first in a series starring these two boys. ( )

My very first SF book as a child.

I read this book perhaps 40 years ago at the age of about 10, and was enchanted. I remembered it recently and decided to obtain a copy and reread it for the sake of reliving a childhood memory.

Considering that it was written in 1966 for children, it holds up pretty well, and there is a surprising amount of real science and astronomy in it. That said, it shows its age in its sexism (the newspaper advertisement asks for a 'boy' not a 'child') and some hokey 1960's language ('gee willikers!')

I was in two minds about reading this - wanting to relive a childhood memory without spoiling it. I'm glad I did. ( )

It's just not possible to recapture a read from 1969. I was not old enough to know or care about some of the science parts being really, really improbable...nay, impossible...as we had just been to the Moon and had recently landed a probe on Mars that put paid to even the dream of a Universe like the one Author Cameron created.

I loved revisiting Dave Topman and Chuck Masterson's flight to the impossible, tiny planet Basidium, all of 50,000 miles away. Their home-made rocket that traveled 25,000 miles an hour. Their bags od groceries to eat on the way there and back...two hours each way...two hours on Basidium, where they somehow spoke the language of the Mushroom People and solved a mystery that confounded the adult Mushroom People...the chicken that saved the day....

Nope, too old to get back there, but it was some good fun peeking back at the boyhood adventure that didn't have to make sense because what the hell actually does when you're eight or nine? It's starting to, but not quite yet does, blessedly.

I would give this to a six-year-old and read it with her. Maybe a slightly slow seven-year-old. No older than that, in today's world, and I'm not all the way sure it's even a good idea because gender roles and sex stereotyping are at the core of the story. So maybe, if like me you read it in your tinyhood, you'll smile and enjoy and keep out of reach of children. ( )

To my son, the real David, who asked for this book and who edited it with a stern black pencil—and to Ian, who whispered in Mr. Bass's ear the secret of the marvelous stroboscopic polaroid filter—with my love and my thanks.
