The Rolling Stones

by Robert A. Heinlein
Release date: 1952
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, young adult

The Rolling Stones is also known as Space Family Stone. A condensed version of the novel was published in Boys' Life (September–December 1952) as "Tramp Space Ship".

When the Stone twins made up their minds to leave Lunar City in a secondhand spaceship, they hadn't planned on having their whole family accompany them. But the Stones were not your ordinary Lunar family – no way! – and their voyage through the solar system sure proved it.

What began as a simple business expedition to Mars soon mushroomed into a dangerous situation when Grandma Stone was lost in space. Then, just when everything seemed to be getting better, a Martian flatcat came aboard and fouled up the works.

But the real trouble didn't get underway until the Stones headed for the asteroid belt to take up a mining proposition they, somehow, couldn't refuse...
