“David returns for a second summer at his grandmother's Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast, a vacation spot for aliens. With his friend Amy running all the B&B's activities and his grandma busy trying out recipes for the town's upcoming baking contest, David is feeling like the odd man out. Things are even worse after they refuse to believe his warning that the new handyman, an alien named Scratchull, is planning to destroy planet Earth. With only a doglike purple creature named Snarffle at his side will David be able to set things straight before the end of world?”
-- Ellen Klein, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA


Description

David is looking forward to spending another adventure-filled summer at his grandmother's Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast-a vacation hotspot for aliens. But as soon as he meets Grandma's new repairman, an alien named Scratchull, he becoms suspicious. The only problem is that it is difficult to be sneaky when you have a ravenous alien pet attached to you. Even though no one else-including Grandma-thinks that Scratchull is an underhanded handyman, David decides to spy on him. But no one believes David when he discovers that Scratchull really is an evil mastermind with a plot to destroy the planet. Without the help of Grandma and his friends, will David be able to save Earth before it's too late?
