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 :) . ( )

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? ( )

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.
First words
One night after dinner when David was reading Dr. Doolittle in the Moon, and his father was reading the newspaper, and his mother was darning socks, his father suddenly exclaimed: "Well, now, that's very odd!"
