Description

From the mind of the storyteller who has captured the imagination of readers from around the world and across generations comes this classic work of science fiction.

First prize in the Skyway Soap slogan contest was an all-expenses-paid trip to the moon. The consolation prize was an authentic space suit, and when scientifically minded high school senior Kip Russell won it, he knew for certain he would use it one day to make a sojourn of his own to the stars. But one day comes sooner than he thinks when he tries the suit on in his backyard-and finds himself worlds away, a prisoner aboard a space pirate's ship. The whole thing seems like a bad dream until he discovers he's not the only prisoner on board. Kip-along with the daughter of a world-renowned scientist and a beautiful creature from another planet-has been kidnapped by a monstrous extraterrestrial, and they are heading straight for what could be Kip's final destination.

A journey of 167,000 lights years begins with—a bar of soap? Fasten your zero gravity restraints for Robert Heinlein's novel of intergalactic adventure, a story that carries teenager Clifford "Kip" Russell from his job as soda jerk to spacesuit winner to alien abductee! Along the way Kip is joined by a pint-sized genius named PeeWee and an empathetic alien creature known as "the Mother Thing." The story of how this strange trio battles alien gangsters only to end up on trial in an intergalactic court trillions of miles from Earth features all the wicked humor, brilliant detail, and g-force drama that made Robert Heinlein the world's favorite science fiction writer.

Now listeners can experience it as never before as the Full Cast Family of readers bring the characters to vivid new life in this...
