(#149991). First edition. "A science fantasy of wild and fantastic adventures on both the Moon and Jupiter. The hero's spacecraft is a steam-driven North Pole, but although the novel was written for children, it has much to commend it to the adult reader. Preceding ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND by more than a decade, its early chapters have some of the curious logic of that classic. It is, however, a true interplanetary with not a little thought given to the problems of space flight." - Locke, Voyages into Space 62. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 67.
