School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-Will Denis and his little brother Robby, who first appeared in My Life among the Aliens (Putnam, 1996), return in another imaginative, tongue-in-cheek adventure involving uninvited guests. An intergalactic entrepreneur has selected the Denis home to be an interstellar resort featuring Mom's dubious health-nut cuisine with entr‚es like zucchini bran pizza. Each visitor seems to have some peculiar talent, whether it's helping the children by aggressively selling knickknacks for their ubiquitous elementary school fund-raisers, repairing Dad's car, providing intergalactic Internet access, or, in one unkind characterization, using a hefty derriere to help move Mr. Denis's station wagon out from a snowbank. There's even a barf fest that would do Paul Jennings proud, precipitated by feeding stale guests large quantities of junk food. Kids who liked My Life will revel in more of these sometimes confusing, occasionally macabre, and often just plain weird takes on life in the neighborhood.-John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
