The best science fiction mother figure was Mother Thing from Robert A Heinlein’s early work, “Have Spacesuit—Will Travel.” Mother Thing was a cat-like being who guided the young Kip Russell through his first adventure in space. She represents wisdom and bravery to Kip Russell and to young readers. Mother Thing acted as the sort of guide one wishes for in exploration of new worlds.
