I found "Have SpaceSuit will travel" in my gradeschool library. The story of a young man who gets an old NASA spacesuit, and his resultant adventures. I remember this very fondly, and reccomend it highly.

I read this book when I was 11 or 12 and now am 63 and read it again. I bought it for my 9 yo daughter. The current technology still has not caught up with the book and probably will not for many centuries. Heinlein is one of the greatest sci-fi authors IMO.

Written in 1958, the story is surprisingly current in many respects. An eighteen-year old boy gets involved in inter-stellar adventure by being hard-working, intelligent, brave, and lucky. It is an inspiring and fun tale.

I read this when I was nine and have read it several times since. It is a timeless classic that never grows old.

One of Heinlein's juvenile SF novels, this is one of my favorites from when I was a high school teen just getting into SF. Great read, and I still have it on my shelf.

Not Heinlein's best. Not the best writing style. Not the best characters. Not the best plot. But very darn close!!! A great adventure book for kids, Have Spacsuit-Will Travel has both strong male and female characters. Dialouge is wonderful and seems very real, and the ending is one of those "feel-goods." A great read for any kid, or any adult for that matter!

I am a teen and this book is for teens so kids younger would most likly have a hard reading this or teens that have a low reading level would most likly not injoy this book because there are some words that are hard to understand.
