KIRKUS REVIEW

A quiz program prize gives young Roy Malcolm a rocket trip to a space station en route to another planet. There he is introduced to the mysteries of gravity, acclimatizing, a misplaced atomic waste pile ship, monsters on Mars, space pirates. And he comes back, accompanied by a family of Martian colonists, bringing the children back to Earth for college....Bad as it sounds, it is superior to the others.
