Having left it in my bathroom for several weeks recently by accident (do
other people make sure to put boring things you know you have to read
into the bathroom, so they will get read?), I have to agree. I just 
re-read _The Flight to the Mushroom Planet_ and for believability, I 
have to say I find Mushroom Planet less jarring!

(I'm re-reading all my kid paperbacks with an eye to giving away those 
that don't stand up to re-reading for me. This is merely because I have 
a huge swarm of now-reading foster nieces and nephews, combined with 
limited bookcase space.)
