Nice clean collectible book. Corners rubbed on the very tips.A few smudges on the back cover. Summary: The following summary was extracted from the dust jacket of this book and e-mailed to me by Christopher Pepin. Thanks! This brand new series of adventures for boys introduces Tom Swift Jr., son of the famous inventor of a generation ago. Young Tom is now an inventor in his own right. As an associate in his father's great enterprise at Shopton, his brilliant mind is seething with the inventive genius that will make him even better known than his father. In this first exciting book of the new TOM SWIFT JR. series, Tom's gigantic flying laboratory will carry you faster than sound into a thrilling struggle against a gang of international enemies. Tom must overcome the scheming of this game as well as terrific mechanical problems to build his fabulous aircraft, which will soar straight up from the ground, fly at supersonic speeds, and carry scout planes in it's own hanger. When the Sky Queen is completed, Tom and his friend Bud Barclay take off for South America where the same enemies are seeking to gain control of a mountain of uranium. The tense action of their adventures fills every chapter. Each scientific detail of this fascinating story has been carefully checked. Tom Swift's inventions may be years ahead of the time, just as his fathers were in their time, but they are all plausible and someday you may see them in use. ABEEE

Honestly, the twist at the end is not one I will spoil as written, but it is sure to make you say Hay! I hate puns. Stand out character is the medium Madam Creepy, the mystic alligator. The drawings are fun and in keeping with the artist and writer's other collaborations. A fun time.ABDDD
