When Rod Allbright's cousin Elspeth arrived for a visit the day after school let out for the summer, Rod thought his vacation was ruined. But after they are kidnapped to Dimension X by a monster named Smorkus Flinders, Rod realizes that Elspeth is the least of his problems. After all, what's a bratty cousin compared to cranky monsters, furious aliens, and the discovery that you are stuck in the middle of an interstellar power play?
And that doesn't begin to take into account the horrifying personal decision that Rod will be forced to make before his adventures are over.

Grade 4-6-In this sequel to Aliens Ate My Homework (Pocket, 1993), Rod Allbright and his bratty cousin Elspeth are kidnapped by Smorkus Flinders, a huge and hideous monster from Dimension X. Smorkus is holding them hostage to trap Rod's alien friends from the good ship Ferkel. The ship's captain and crew manage to rescue Rod and Elspeth, but getting out of Dimension X and stopping the evil Smorkus proves to be more difficult. After spending time with some shapeshifters and apprenticing to the warrior Tar Gibbons, Rod acquires new self-confidence, and, discovering that Smorkus knows something about his missing father, the enraged boy defeats the giant and saves the universe. Readers will enjoy the trademark combination of humor, nonstop action, and wild characters that distinguish Coville's books. With its bright cover, alluring title, and occasional black-and-white illustrations, this book is guaranteed to be popular with space-opera fans, comic-book readers, and budding science-fiction enthusiasts.
