    Very fun book for all ages, esp for boys

    I got a copy of this book for my daughter when it came out, and after glancing through it, decided to read it myself. The plot concerns a young preteen boy that is a bit of an outcast, possibly a 'geek' who has issues with his prodigal sister and bibliophile of an older brother. He has self esteem issues as well. One day, he witnesses an alien realtor trying to sell earth to the highest bidder, as humans have ( as we all know) been bad tenants, with our pollution and disconnection from nature. It is up to him and his motley crew of friends-and alien partners, one of who is a talking parking meter- to prove to galactic courts that humans can make a change.
    I found it very funny, even for my age, and think that kids ages 9 to 14 will enjoy it even more. A friend of mine bought it for her son and they ended up getting a second copy, they loved it so much.

    Sounds great!

    Mr. Mihaley came to the los angeles public library and showed us his book. He had a girl read the first chapter... 2 sentences! I can't wait to read it!

    I got the hard copy version after the author came to our school

    I got the hard copy version after the author came to our school and read some of it, and bought the book afterwards. All of us really liked it.

    Highly recommended

    I liked this book. The author came to our school to do a reading and we bought a book afterwards. I finished it quickly. I like the character a lot, who is about my age. I really liked Big Daddy, the droid guy that cleans up trash and makes it into trees.

    What a read! We read this one in only a few hours. My wife and I loved it, and so did our sons. It's great for middle grade readers who are not ready for all the dark stuff that creeps into YA and that somehow still manages to attract very young kids. It's good for older children and adults as well, as it has a good plot and progresses at a steady rate.
    Giles is a quirky boy in need of a life changing experience. One moment he is playing in his tree house...the next he is the valet for aliens looking to buy earth. Because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time, it is up to him to prove that humans are capable of coming together to clean up earth.
    Our favorite character had to be Dr. Sprinkles,a blob like mad scientist slash shoe fetishist. She creates gadgets to help Giles on his mission. I also loved the shrunken head key chain that has a few short appearances. I would have liked Stanley to had more of a role, and hope he will be in the sequel!
