H. Beam Piper's classic science fiction novel of the discovery of another sentient race -- the Fuzzies -- and the one man who fought to prove them mankind's equal.
Fun read. "Old school" scifi.
Absolutely delightful! Well written and absorbing. Now I want a sequel!

loved it the first time I read it
Brilliant. What a lovely concept. Had me riveted from the first page.
READ THIS LONG AGO FOR THE FIRST TIME, AND MANY TIMES SINCE..MY FAV OF ALL BOOKS I OWN!!!
Wonder charming first book in the Little Fuzzy series.
HAD READ THIS BOOK MANY YEARS AGO AND JUST LOVED IT, GLAD TO HAVE FOUND IT AGAIN...IT IS A WONDERFUL LIL BOOK TO BE ABLE TO READ AGAIN!!!
Read this story just after it was published in paperback - and now when I am 71 -the story remains a good read.
I loved the suspense
A great story. Piper's libertarian philosophy had a big impact on me in my youth.
As it says in the book description, a classic!
A great book. There are more in the series.
Enjoyed this book as a teenager, and was thrilled for the chance to re-read it now in my 50's.
