Greatest book about a cat in space ever written. I read this book at age 7, after checking it out from the school library This book, with its 3 companions Space Cat Visits Venus, etc are the first science fiction books I ever read, and I can trace my love of that genre to this series. I loved this book as a child, and the prospect of re reading it as adult delights me Off to make an Inter Library Loan request right now UPDATEStill awesome My cats prefer The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, though. This edition was published in 1991 but I read it literally my lifetime ago It was my favorite book at age 6 or 7 Was already hooked on sci fi and cats, of course Wonderful illustrations The respect shown Space Cat by the humans in the story puts humans in a wonderful light Also loved Space Cat Meets Mars as well as Space Cat Visits Venus Ruthven Todd, by the way, also wrote an excellent essay on William Blake which I read about 40 years later. One of the defining books of my life Read it during the Johnson administration Named one of our pet cats Flyball after it I absolutely loved these books as a kid They were part of my early intro to scifi I still loved them when I read them to my sons The cat stows away with his astronaut owner on a trip on his rocket ship Priceless.
