SKYJACKED!

One minute Kip Russell is walking around his own backyard, testing out an old space suit and dreaming about going to the moon–the next he is the captive of a space pirate and on his way to the very place he had been dreaming of. At first, the events are so unreal he thinks he might be having a nightmare . . . but when he discovers other prisoners aboard the spaceship he knows the ordeal is all too real. Kip and his fellow abductees, the daughter of a world-renowned scientist and a beautiful creature from an alien planet, have been skyjacked by a monstrous extraterrestrial who is flying them to the moon–on a journey toward a fate worse than death. . . .

Have Space Suit–Will Travel is the newest addition to the Del Rey Imagine program, which offers the best in classic fantasy and science fiction for readers 12 and up.

Synopsis:

Kip Russell lives in small-town America when he wins a space suit in a competition. He is suddenly kidnapped and finds himself in an alien spaceship headed to the moon. This timeless work is ready to be discovered by a new generation.

What may very well be the best of Heinlein?s Juveniles and still a fine read for an adult fan. If you want to start a child on a lifetime Science Fiction habit this is the book to do it. It has all the classic Heinlein plot elements from a science struck teenager to an empowered female. Throw in some bad guys and several alien races and you have an engrossing story. Give this one to a Harry Potter fan and tell them you are going to show them how it's done. Some of the planetary science is a little dated but not much and the Heinlein commentary on the school system is still spot on. The best part for an adult read or reread is that Robert Heinlein wrote this in 1958. This is still a good Science Fiction Book. When Heinlein writes them, they stay written.
