  1. Thanks for that. As a child I loved all things space related. My favorite book was, "The wonderful flight to the mushroom planet."

    It was written in the 1950's but it talked about two boys creating a spaceship to go to a small planet between the moon and the earth. They were helped by a kindly old scientist Tyco Bass who lives in Pacific Grove, CA.

    I sent copies of this book to a relative who is a teacher and read the first chapter to them every year. The story still enchants the kids of 2013 as it did me in 1963.

  2. I have the complete BOOL collection, both YES and NO.
