Time and Mr. Bass by Eleanor Cameron

    • Time and Mr. Bass by Eleanor Cameron
    • Published in 1967
    • Fifth book in the Mushroom Planet series
      • Good Reads lists it as Book #6 because there is an e-book available that includes 2 short stories published in 1964 thus by chronology it could be considered Book #5.

    • The final Mushroom Planet book really amps up the adventure and fully involves Mr. Tyco Bass and his past.
    • An ancient scroll and necklace are stolen from the Mycetians (the Mushroom people who live on Earth) and begin causing problems. Mr. Bass and the two boys, David and Chuck, go searching for them in England and Wales.
    • Meanwhile, an ancient enemy of Mr. Bass is also on his trail.
    • David and Chuck learn the story of Mr. Bass and why he has such amazing powers.


  1. Love your comments and can't wait to read it! I was able to borrow a mystery for Mr Bass on openbook.org and am attacking it so I can read book 5.

    1. I'm so glad you found it! My favorites were the 1st and 5th books, the first because it's the one I read a lot as a kid and the fifth because it had so much backstory on Mr. Bass. Enjoy and let me know how you like it!

  2. Whoops! That was openlibrary.org. Great website!
