Aliens on Vacation

Aliens on Vacation

by Clete Barrett Smith Illustrated by Christian Slade
Check into the weirdest, wackiest hotel ever with this imaginative adventure!

Scrub is stuck spending the summer at his grandmother's inn...and there's something really weird going on. All of the guests look, dress, and act strangely, and Grandma's grocery list includes things like 50 boxes of tinfoil and 25 bottles of SPF 50 sunscreen. It turns out that Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast isn't just a cute name; Grandma's guests really are aliens from outer space!

The friendly aliens just want to enjoy a nice, relaxing vacation, but it's hard to keep the unusual guests a secret from the townspeople — and from the sheriff who's determined to shut down the inn. When Scrub's camping trip with three trouble-making young aliens turns into a complete disaster, the sheriff just might get his wish, unless Scrub can come up with a plan fast!
