I mostly remember there was something about sulfer. And I remember I loved this book. I think I need to read it again.

A really nice children's space adventure. The actual space part might seem a little short but overall delightful story with enough mystery to keep it compelling. Reminded me a little of Mary Poppins.
With so many magic based children's stories about its nice to see one with a more sci-fi bent. A great tale for any budding astronomers or astronauts and possibly any biologists as well, as there is a lot about mushrooms too :) .

My favorite book of all time. I first read it as an elementary school student and have reread it multiple times. A young girl who wants to be a writer, the loss of someone beloved, feeling like an outsider -- so much of this resonates with me personally. The illustrations are incredible.
