Kids' Short Story: SciFi/Horror. A spaceship, illustrated like a classic 1950 pulp rocket resting on its bottom fins, lands on planet with glass and crystal plants and animals. The beauty of the alien landscape turns to horror as they realized that the vegetation is cutting their space suits. Upon trying to return to the ship their space suits are slowly compromised by glass shards and they all(?) die.

Read in the mid 70’s from elementary school library. Large hardcover book (smaller than 8x11) with colour illustrations and other horror stories.
