A crazed and dying Flight Lieutenant, nine village children, a top-secret spacecraft - all of them out of control and adrift in space! Someone must take charge. But who? Brylo has the brains, but not the personality, so it is the powerful young bully Tony who sets himself up as Captain - and steers the ship and its cargo of children towards new and horrifying dangers...

The science is accurate, the problem children up to date, the situation believable, yet this first appeared in 1967. It concerns a group of English children who end up alone in an experimental spaceship, hurtling toward the sun. Actor Andy Crane brings authenticity to the nicely written story. He has a young-sounding voice, not cockney but not upper crust, and reads with lively expressiveness. He attempts a different cadence with each voiceŠthe younger children are more whiny, more prissy; the older ones harder and more adamant. Once the children hear a disc jockey on the radio, and it sounds like a disc jockey. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
