I first read this as a boy. It's pretty well done even from the perspective of an adult. I've re-read it several times and still have a copy. It takes me back to simpler times.

This is a great piece of science fiction. I had originally purchased this book from "the book cart" back in 1970, and kept my original copy for all these years, as I loved the story so much. When I picked it up for another re-read a few years back, I noticed the word 'abridged', which I had never thought about much as a kid. With some difficulty, I was able to hunt down and purchase a hardcover of the book, and WOW, it became a much better and more serious story in several spots, where it had clearly been watered down a bit for the scholastic edition. The main plot of the book remains the same, but subtle changes give it a bit more weight. Sadly, trying to find a copy of the hardcover is like trying to find hen's teeth, and when you DO locate a copy, it's literally hundreds of dollars. While I will always keep my paperback copy for nostalgia, it's only the hardcover that get's the re-read these days, and I enjoy it even more now than I ever did. If you can find the elusive hardcover and you are a fan, I urge you to get a hold of it, you'll really enjoy how the story is a bit more adult in it's original 1967 version.

Ihad this book as a kid fromn the weekly reaqder program and I really loved it. When I found it was on Amazon I jumped at it. The book was as advertised and it was great to relive a little bit of my childhood.

Format: Paperback
This is a marvellous introduction to Sci-fi in the best traditions and a great book many years ahead of it's time. There are great characters, and the book introduces both complex and challenging themes to young readers while keeping a bit of hard science in play amidst the fantastic.

Many years in advance of "equality" themes, this story features a very smart, savvy, gutsy, and adventurous girl hero who is both an equal and accepted by her male peers. The author allows her to be a girl, share her feminine traits, but never allows her `fairer sex" to diminish her role or importance to the story.

There are many complex themes in this book's story that include culture clash, issues of race - albeit between aliens - and discussions of compromise and acceptance that are never heavy handed. Refreshingly, there is some degree of moral ambiguity that gives the reader room to brood upon larger ideas.

Written in the age of "Sea Hunt", this book not only got me hooked on Sci0fi, it got me completely hooked on scuba diving.

The ending of this book always suggested to me that a sequel was planed. Here's to hoping the sequel get's written before Disney gets hold of this book.

My son wanted the earlier edition, but was happy with this one. He read the story in high school, and wanted to have his own copy.
