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.

Even though I am WELL into adulthood, I enjoy "children's" books. I can enjoy the whimsy of the story without having to get bogged down in keeping track of complex story lines and multiple characters. Aliens on Vacation is just a fun read. I liked the premise of the story and its execution. I keep checking for a sequel.
I liked this book because it teaches about the galaxies beyond and what could/does happen in their galaxies. My favorite character was mr. Harnax. I liked him because he was an Alien who helped a lot.
I think this book is good for 2nd graders.
I'm a huge fan of Audible. As a school librarian, I've found that it passes my days and nights.
Good life lessons throughout the story. The book is going to offer great discussions for our book club next week.
