The Rolling Stones, a Heinlein juvenile novel.

First published in condensed form as a serial in Boys' Life (September, October and November 1952 issues) under the title Tramp Space Ship.

Also appeared as Space Family Stone (1969).

Publisher’s Blurb – Jacket Flap
The Stones were a space-minded family, so it was not surprising when the seventeen-year-old twins, Castor and Pollux, bought a second-hand space-ship. They named it The Rolling Stone, and the whole family started off in it for the Asteroids.

This book is good fun throughout and it is a take-off on many things including space serials on television. The characters are amusing, the action exciting. And once again we have an unusual anumal, this time it is a "flat cat" from Mars
