“Scrub's parents send him to stay with Grandma for the summer and help out at her backwoods bed-and-breakfast. What a surprise he gets when he meets her guests! Can Scrub keep the local sheriff (and his nice-but-nosy daughter) from discovering just where these strange tourists come from? I can't wait for the next book in this fun, new series!”
— Ellen Klein, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA
Scrub isn t happy about having to spend the summer with his hippie grandmother in Middle of Nowhere, Washington. When he arrives at her Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast, he's not surprised by its 1960s-meets-Star Wars decor, but he is surprised by the weird-looking guests. It turns out that each room in the inn is a portal and his grandma is the gate-keeper, allowing aliens to vacation on Earth. She desperately needs Scrub's help with disguising the tourists as humans. As if that weren t difficult enough, the town sheriff is already suspicious of Granny. One wrong move and Scrub could blow Grandma's cover, forcing the B&B to shut down forever. And when it comes to aliens, every move seems very wrong.... Full of cosmic chaos and mind-bending mayhem, Scrub's summer adventure will leave readers wanting to make a return trip. House Rules for a Successful Visit 1. Leave nothing behind 2. Take nothing with you 3. Dress appropriately 4. Two arms, two legs, one head 5. No harming the natives.
