KIRKUS REVIEW

A trip to Mars from an already established U. N. controlled Moon City offers some good guesses about the canals, tri-sexual plant life, the peculiar gestures and emotions of Sptz Rrll and his fellow Martians. Less sloppily and illogically written than the middle three of this series, this still has a few thin spots such as Chuck's need to stowaway on the trip because he lacks a day of being eighteen; but on the whole it's a sensible story. In it, rocket take-offs, landings, and operations in general are much like those in the recent movie, Destination Moon.
