David can't wait to spend another summer at his grandmother's Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast, a vacation hot spot for aliens. But this summer isn't quite what he was expecting. There are some new faces at the B&B this year, including a doglike purple creature named Snarffle, who appears in David's room out of nowhere, and Scratchull, Grandma's new alien repairman. With David's friend Amy running everything at the B&B, and Grandma busy preparing to win the baking competition at the town's Pioneer Day Festival, David feels like he doesn't fit in. To make matters worse, David thinks that Scratchull is an evil mastermind with a plot to destroy Earth, and no one, not even Grandma, believes him. Does Scratchull really have a wicked plan, or is David blowing things out of galaxy-sized proportion? And if David's right, will he be able to save the planet?
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 1960's-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.
