Have Space Suit, Will Travel
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.
