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

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 theonly prisoner on board. Kip - along with the daughter of a world-renownedscientist and a beautiful creature from another planet - has been kidnapped by amonstrous extraterrestrial, and they are heading straight for what could be Kip's final destination.

Wry humor obliterated by inept reading
- Scott "No B.S. reviews. I'll never soft-pedal bad writing or inept narration."
Classic tale, One of Heinlein's best.
Yes I would listen to it again, it is one if not the best of Heinlein's tales.
It is a toss up between Kip and PeeWee. Both are very strong characters.
Just misses the mark.
The title of course, Have Space Suit - Will Travel
The tale was one of my favorites, The narrator M Turetsky some how just misses the tone of the book. Granted I read this tale many, well many many years ago for the first time, as a boy. Given the characters, Kip is just graduating High School and PeeWee at 11, it calls for a voice that can capture that flavor. At one time Audible offered the same book by Whole Cast Audio which fit the book perfectly. But while the narration wasn't as I would like it the tale is still very much worth hearing.
