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.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–7–Aliens sauntering down Main Street in Forest Grove, Washington? Grandma accepting an award as Intergalactic Hotelier of the Year? In the third book (Disney Hyperion, 2013) in the series, Smith again delivers a comedy that is sure to tickle the antennae of listeners who enjoy a good extraterrestrial story. One small alien questions the naming of corn dogs: “So, humans think that sounds tasty? To name food stuffs after their cute little domesticated life companions?” When Grandma and Tate are called away from the Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast, David and Amy are left in charge of the Tourists. What could possibly go wrong with a couple of middle schoolers running a hotel for aliens? Things really heat up when members of the Spaceship and UFO Observation Society become convinced that the Bed and Breakfast is not all that it seems. Will they ruin the secret that Grandma has worked all of her life to keep? Is Grandma in trouble? Smith's sarcastic sense of humor is perfect for a tale about space aliens. Todd Haberkorn masterfully narrates the novel, incorporating many voices that bring the story to life. Readers are quickly drawn into the plot. The many narrative twists and turns allow for potential predicting exercises and video projects.–Terri Perper, Middletown Public Library, MDα(c) Copyright 2013.
