Product Description
Imagine that you had just finished the sixth grade, and you were all set to have a fun summer of basketball with your buddies. Then, your parents break the news to you. You are going to get to go to Grandma's house just outside of Forest Lawn, Washington! The last time you saw her you were just a tot! By now she's got to be a hundred years old! What is there to do at her Bed and Breakfast? Answer to that's got to be, "NOTHING!"

But, in what seems a blink of an eye, you arrive at Grandma's house. Immediately, you zero in on the sign out front: Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast and observe a ten-foot tall man eating aluminum foil and smelling her mailbox. What would you think?

Inside you meet your grandma dressed in 60's hippie clothes and surrounded by Star Wars decorations. It isn't long until you discover that alien families (the kind with a hundred eyes surrounding their huge domed heads, or six arms, or tentacles) emerging from every closet in her Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast.
Where did they come from?
Now what do you think?
Still think the summer's going to be boring?

Guess who's going to have to pitch in to help the aliens have a great time?
Guess who's trying to put a stop to the "funny business" that he senses at the inn?
Guess what problems arise? Never mind. They are not guessable.

We here at Kids Wings believe that Aliens on Vacation has got to be one of the best books ever written for kids of all ages. It has it all: depth of the characterization, an absolutely original plot, laugh-out-loud situations, a pretty girl, basketball, aliens, science, and lots of trouble! You will find a loyal, funny, clever, and imaginative friend in Scrub and a Grandma like no other!

This is science fiction at its best!
