Rocketship Galileo - Robert Heinlein

This is the Sixty-ninth in my one-book-at-a-time bookshelf.

Apparently, when Heinlein pitched this book, the publisher thought that travel to the moon was too far and initially rejected it. It was 1947 and the publisher was right in a sense. The moon is an awful long way! Not one of Heinlein's best books but very readable and has all the elements that I like about his juvenile works.
