    One thought on “Stowaway to the Mushroom Planet”

    1. I have the first book in this juvenile series which I ordered centuries ago from book though grade school but have not read it. This book was well written and fun so I look forward to reading the first, which I'm sure will be just as magical.

    2. A quick read, but a very charming one! I have not read the first book, as I can't get it without buying it, but TPL had this one in print and still circulating, so I read it instead. I must say, the science is not nearly as silly as it could be, given the age of the book!

    3. I'm a little surprised to find this on but glad I can log it. I picked it up for free at a book giveaway because of the copyright date: 1956. What were children's books like in 1956? Not bad, it turns out. I knew there was a first book, and shows at least a book 3, so I might try to dig up a copy or two. Yeah, it's a little simplistic, but it shows a love of science and astronomy that's admirable. I'm a little concerned about myself because I was disappointed there wasn't more death in it. Tha [...]

    4. David Topman and Chuck Masterson thought they would never get to visit Basidium again. Their spaceship had been destroyed by the storm and tides when they'd returned to Earth and Tyco Bass was gone, simply floated away into the skies. As per his will, his home was the head of an astronomical Society. In Mr. Bass's notes, they found frequent mention of a Dr. Frobisher and decided to write him about the possibility of giving a lecture to their group.At that same time, a man arrives at the bass hom [...]

    5. Going through a bookshelf at my parent's house I came across a rather peculiar book, a science fiction book for children that was written in the 1950s. Now Stowaway to the Mushroom Planet by Eleanor Cameron is the second of an eight book series about Basidium a small planetoid about 50,000 miles out from earth and the Mushroom people that live there.The most striking thing about the book is not the talk about a tiny planet close to earth that is the perfect size for little boys, but the discussi [...]

    6. This second book in the Mushroom Planet series was a fast, fun read. I do agree with the reviewer who said the pacing is awfully slow - they don't even go to the planet until the second half of the book - but that makes sense given how little time they are actually able to stay there.The character of Horatio is a pretty stock '50s sci-fi baddie, but that is also to be expected. It's the author's inventiveness in describing the Bass cousins, the mushroom planet, and its inhabitants that makes th [...]

    7. It's been a LONG while since I've read this, so I don't remember that much about it other than the fact that I liked it. I was also THRILLED at the idea that that there was a sequel to "The Wonderful Flight to the Muchroom Planet. I mean think of it, an actual continuation of the story, with the same characters, who then get to go BACK to the magical planet from the first book. (This was before I discovered that some books have whole SERIES based on them, so it was a much bigger deal at the time [...]

    8. Book 2 in the Mushroom Planet series and shows sophmore slump pains. The tale of the crass interloper in Utopia making plans to commercialize paradise are in full effect. The best part of the book is the ceremony in the Hall of The Ancient Ones, the rest of it's rather snoozy. I have a feeling the next three volumes will be more interesting than this one, and for all you sports fans make a point to get the original volumes illustrated by Robert Henneberger, who compliments Eleanor Cameron's fant [...]

    9. Like its prequel, The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet, this book is characterized by gentle humor, imagination, and a fun little story. I enjoyed a great deal as a child. I don't know how much interest its simple story line and calm humor would have for today's children raised on more energetic fare (e.g The Hunger Games, the Harry Potter series, or other such books), but its worth a try. It would be a shame if the Eleanor Cameron's Mushroom Planet books went unappreciated simply because [...]

    10. This was a fine book, but it never really grabbed me and forced me to read it, and this caused me to allow the inter-library loan deadline to creep up and snatch it back. Almost halfway in and they hadn't made it to the mushroom planet was part of the pacing issue that slowed me down. My verdict is that I can't be certain these lit my imagination when I was younger, and if they did it was the concept over the execution that fired that imagination.

    11. Good sequel to the first story, The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet, this one has a dastardly, egotistical villain who you find yourself rooting against AND feeling sorry for. Good reading for the preteens who like adventure. Recommend to all who've read the first one and as for me I'm off to the third one!!!

    12. Part of the Mushroom Planet Series, which got me interested in Sci-fi at a young age. See my review of the first book, "Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet". Kept me interested enough to continue with the series.

    13. I read this when I was a kid and loved it! I read the whole series, in fact. They don't write science fiction like that any more!

    14. Young adult or childrens story really. It's not as good as the "wonderful flight" but it is still a charming work.

    15. When I finished the first book in this series, The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet, I immediately started (and read through to the end) this sequel. Wonderful! What a great series of books.

    16. I really enjoyed the story- especially the part about bringing the chicken along, who turned out to save the mushroom planet.

    17. Hah! I loved this book when I was in primary school. Must pick up a newish copy when the Small One comes of age. If only we really could just build rockets in our backyards :)

    18. Great book for boys; not so much my thing. It would be fun for read-alouds, but I also want to hit it with a stick sometimes.

    19. The kids and I read this book together. I loved this series as a kid and wanted my kids to experience it also. They've really enjoyed it.
