Have Space Suit--Will Travel, by Robert A. Heinlein

This is yet another Heinlein's juveniles, and yet another good time. It's classic SF at it's finest; it would have made a great B movie. You've got a courageous, resourceful young man; a plucky girl (literally-- she's ten years old); a gifted scientist (her father); bug-eyed monsters; super-science; and a wonderful lessons in how to save the world and deal with the town bully, respectively. I couldn't take it at all seriously, especially the technology, but gosh it was a fun thing to read while home sick with a cold.
