Overview

When David's grandma wins a hotelier award and goes to accept it on another planet, security officer Tate assumes full control of the Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast. His decision to put the alien tourists on total lockdown doesn't go over well, however, and most of the guests vacate. Tate decides to retrieve Grandma, leaving David and his friend Amy home alone. Running the B&B when there are only a few guests should be a breeze, especially for two kids who saved the universe just a few weeks ago. But soon David and Amy (and alien pooch, Snarflle) are faced with such problems as a lost alien, a pair of gate-crashers, and a potential horde of UFO-watchers descending on the inn. Middle grade readers will be over the moon about this third kooky comedy featuring an assortment of hapless humans and admirable aliens.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Caitlin Marineau
Like many kids his age, David is spending the summer at his grandmother's home, but his grandmother is not just anybody, and her home is actually a hotel for extraterrestrial beings vacationing on Earth. The third book in Clete Barrett Smith's "Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast" series finds David and his friend Amy with a sudden increase in responsibility at the B&B. His grandmother is presented with an award for Intergalactic Hotelier of the Year, and promptly whisked away to an awards ceremony in another galaxy, with Amy's father, Officer Tate, pursuing close behind out of concern for her welfare. David and Amy are left in control of the inn, which is all they have ever wanted, but problems quickly arise. As David and Amy try to keep their guests both happy and hidden from the outside world, a pair of UFO seekers show up on the Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast's doorstep, convinced that there are some other-worldly happenings occurring inside. David and Amy must fend off these determined snoops and assuage the concerns of suspicious townspeople, all while running their grandmother's business. Recommended for upper elementary sci-fi fans who will enjoy the creatures and the entertaining climax while also learning some important lessons about responsibility. Reviewer: Caitlin Marineau
