    Mr. Bass is the bomb

    We had to pick a book out to read in our 3rd period english class. I had no idea whaty i wanted to read. One day i was looking through sdome old stuff in out garage and i stumbled upon this book. I needed the book the next day, so i picked it up and put it in my backpack. When i read the covor and saw the mname of the book i was imediatly interested. The book is about two boys who build a spaceship for a man named Mr. Bass. they find a small add in a apaer saying that he needs as many people as possible to build him a spaceship. the boys get right to it and bring the finished product to Mr. Bass. Mr. Bass's houe is amazing and has all these cool gadgets and intruments for astrology and other sciences. The boys soon find out that their spaceship will be put to real use. you have to read to find out what that use is, and i promise you will be siprised. I recomend this book to teens and pre-teens, although older people might get a kick out of it too. It is a short read, but i good one as well.

    A good book for the open-minded science fiction enthusiast!

    I really enjoyed this book because it really fuels your childhood excitement and adventure needs. The descriptions are very real and life like, but not in an annoying more than you wanted to know way. Eleanor Cameron makes the Basidium-ites (the inhabitants of the newly discovered plant Basidium-X) so real to the reader, you might just be tempted to look though the telescope on a cloudless night. Although the book has some unrealistic aspects (The two main characters build a rocket-ship out of old boat ribs and some sheets of metal they had laying around) an open minded reader should be able to overlook those details and enjoy the book. The book is a fairly easy read at 195 pages, but has large type and does not contain many difficult words.

    A Wonderful Book

    I read this book in the 1950s. After reading it, I was convinced that I too could build a spaceship to fly to the Mushroom planet. I'm 52 years old now and am ordering the book to read again.

    THE FIRST NOVEL I ENJOYED READING

    I READ QUITE A BIT AS A CHILD, BUT THERE WERE ONLY A SMALL HANDFUL OF BOOKS THAT WERE MEMORABLE. THIS WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE. THE IMAGERY WAS SO WELL DEFINED THAT YOU CAN PICTURE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE STORY IN YOUR MIND AND FEEL ALMOST AS IF YOUR WITH THEM EXPERIENCING THEIR ADEVENTURE. THIS BOOK WILL INSTILL A LOVE OF READING INTO ANY CHILD. I USUALLY READ THE FIRST FEW CHAPTERS OF BOOKS I LIKE TO MY STUDENTS AND LET THEM FINISH ON THERIR OWN, BUT THIS BOOK IS ONE THEY ALWAYS TAKE TURNS READING TO THE CLASS BECAUSE THEY ALL WANT THE PLEASURE OF FINISHING THE BOOK.

    originally read in 1964 never forgotten never will be

    I was all of 9 years old when i first this book, I understand that it has become somewhat of a classic, I truly understand why. actually today; i can relate to it on spiritual level. the innocence and trust of not only 2 young boys also the innocence trust, and, willingness to believe of the senior citizen who aided them in the construction of their ship. I will read it again just to remind myself of who I once was and how the idea of helping in spite of peril was once so easy to see and except. I truly wish that someone would get a copy of this book to steven spielberg it would make a fantastic movie

    Childhood Favorite!

    I read this book when I was about 10 years old and I never forgot it! The story line is wonderful, captivating, and very original. I remember becoming so engrossed in The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet that I forgot about everything else. It truly is a wonderful flight.

    One of my favorites of all time!

    I first read this book in elementary school back in the 70's. It was one of my favorites; then I stumbled across it a few years ago in our school library and have shared it with many students who give it high praise over and over.

    I can identify with David going to the planet.

    It's a story about an old man convincing two young boys to build a spaceship and go help the Basidiumite's(the people on the planet) from dying because of their magic planets on a hilltop were dying and that's what the Basidiumites relied on to live.
