I believed in Santa Claus for much longer than everyone else my age. My mother proudly raised me to believe in fairies and (let’s be honest here) I still kind of do, particularly whenever I see small cascades in a stream (“fairy waterfalls!”) or tiny holes in tree trunks (“a fairy bedroom!”). My friends all shake their heads at the knowledge that I follow cryptozoology lore online the way that other people my age follow sports or celebrity gossip, and I hope beyond all reasonable hope, [...]
Scrub's plans for the summer are shanghaied when his parents choose to send him to stay with his grandmother at her inn, the Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast. At first Scrub sees the inn as an anachronism straight from the 60s, a blend of Mr. Spock and the Flower Children, with his grandmother as the aging hippie who runs the place. He quickly realizes the establishment and its wild exterior and strange guests are a source of irritation for the citizens of the town and especially the sheriff. S [...]

Neat Entertainer with a lovely climax. That romance between Scrub and Amy though ^_^
When Scrub is sent to his Grandma's house in the state of Washington, he figures his summer is going to be miserable. Instead of hanging out at the pool and playing basketball with his friends in Florida, he's stuck helping his Grandma, who he has never even met before, at her Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast. At first he thinks the odd tourists at the B&B are nutty sci-fi fans, but then he learns the truth: they're actually real aliens who have come to Earth for a vacation! So much for a bor [...]

A humorous story about a most unusual summer vacation.Most twelve-year-olds don't spend their summers working fourteen hours at their grandmother's Bed and Breakfast which caters to aliens, yet that is exactly what David (nicknamed Scrub) does in this story. Floridian Scrub is spending the summer at his peace loving, granola crunching health nut Grandma's Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast located in the Pacific Northwest of Washington. Both the humans in Grandma's hometown and the aliens are unlik [...]

So far I really like Aliens On Vacation by Clete Barrett Smith because it is science fiction and humor all in one. It is about a boy named Scrub who is going to his Grandmother's Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast for the summer. He doesn't really want to go but both his parents are going on business trips so he has no choice. At first he thinks that intergalactic means a bunch of crazy outer space decorations. The he finds out that the guests at the bed and breakfast are aliens visiting from anoth [...]
I heard about this book on the Chuckanut radio show. First of all, this is a kids book, but I've always been a kid at heart. I loved this book and its light hearted humor. David nicknamed Scrub is a young man who is sent to spend the summer with his grandma who he hasnt been too close with. She runs the "intergalactic bed & breakfast" and yes it really is a vacation spot for aliens on a "primative" planet. The B&B is set in Washington (where else?) close to the Canadian border. As Scrub [...]
When Scrub is shipped off to his grandmother's bed and breakfast for the summer, he's in for a surprise instead of typical tourists, the Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast caters to vacationing aliens from all over the universe! This is a funny, science-fiction romp that'll please kids looking for laughs. If the story had been a little tighter (and the book a bit shorter), I think it would have been near perfect. There's a slight romantic subplot that, while it feels fine for the characters and i [...]
Recently I have started reading Aliens on Vacation by Clete Barrett Smith. This book is about a little boy named Scrub and how he gets to spend his wild summer in Tampa Florida with his grandma. One reason I really like this book is because there are many twist and turns with what's happening throughout the story. It has many different ways of telling you certain details you need to know to truly understand the book.I can relate to this when last summer I got put in a situation for summer camp t [...]
I think this is an awesome book for school age children graeds 5-8th. It is a science fiction book with a litlle comedy. It is about a boy named David, whom they call scrub, and is sent to stay with his grandmother for the summer. Scrub, is not happy about going to stay with his grandmother, only to find out, she has a strange bed and breakfast. He finds a frind there named Amy, and they try to solve the mystery of this strange bed and breakfast. They discovered scrubs, Aliens in disguise, and t [...]
This fun fish-out-of-water (or aliens-out-of-water) tale begins when Scrub is sent to spend the summer with his grandma in her kooky bed and breakfast. It has a space theme, and we discover early on that it's actually a hotel for visiting aliens and Scrub must spend his summer disguising the aliens so they will blend in on earth. Throw in some basketball and a budding romance and you have a summer read. I had some niggling details that bugged me, but I think the book will really appeal to kids.
Er. I don't know. I didn't enjoy the book very much, I don't know why. The premise is nice, but I felt like it fell short of my expectations by quite a bit. It might've been because the only character I really liked was Mr. Harnox, everyone else was kind of cardboard. I felt like I was watching a movie in the 90s. The writing isn't bad, not really, it just didn't resonate with me. I wish the alien bit was more fleshed out, but oh well.But yeah. The cover's nice though. And, yeah.
I'll be writing this up for an upcoming Sci Friday!mariaselke/2013/04/sci (full review on my blog) I support independent bookstores. If you want to check out this title, check the link below to find an Indie shop near you or to order from them online!indiebound/book/978142
I really enjoyed this book. 4.5 stars. A few spots could have used editing but all in all a great story with a happy ending. Perfect for a younger YA. I'd like to give five stars to the excerpt in the back - really looking forward to the 2nd one in the series now!
This book was okay. In the book a boy goes to his grandma's hotel which has aliens. I would recommend this book to a person who's interested in aliens.
good,humorous,and well-written and no vulgar or mean humor.I recommend for 7-13 year~olds.
It was FANTASTIC!!
