Venus Boy by Lee Sutton (1916 - 1978).

This thrilling book is now in our catalog at https://librivox.org/venus-boy-by-lee-sutton-2/
The colony on Venus is struggling to survive. All animal life on the planet, from the deadly Arrow Birds to the huge Rhinosaurs are deadly and out to kill any human they can get at. But Venus is home to an extremely valuable resource, the claws and teeth of the little 'bears' called Marva. One of the beautiful diamond hard claws is worth a million dollars. Hunters flock to the planet to find and kill these bears. This story is about the first boy born on Venus and his pet bouncing bear BaBa and their scary adventures and ultimate success in saving the colony ... and the bears! - Summary by philc. ( philc)

If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project.

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

It's never a good day when you get caught by your parents and they apologize for you. Chapter 3 is PL OK.

This boy has had a whipping three days in a row. Obviously tanning a behind was approved of on Venus in those days.

Chapters 5-8 are PL OK.

Here I was enjoying the story and during chapter 7 thinking how great of a find this story was and then the end of chapter 8 came. What's worse is you left me there. :cry: Is Bubba going to be ok?

:wink:
