{Synopsis} – Embark upon an out-of-this-world adventure in this fourth book in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Pike’s Spooksville series—now on TV!

When Adam and his friends stay up late one night, they see bright lights in the sky. Lights that look suspiciously like flying saucers. Then, the next night, one of the saucers lands by the reservoir, and the creatures who come out of the ship don’t look like people at all. Their heads are too large, and their eyes are too big and black. Worse, they want Adam and his friends to come with them for a little ride in space. In fact, the aliens insist that they come. They practically drag the kids into their ship. Then the flying saucer takes off! And it doesn’t look like they'll be coming back anytime soon. Can Adam and his friends figure out a way to get home?

{My thoughts} – Adam, Watch, Cindy and Sally all get to go on an out of this world adventure. They are so hot that the make a trip up to where The Haunted Cave is located so that they can cool off. They spend some time there eating and playing poker. Meanwhile, some alien ships show up and land right where they parked their bikes. The four of them hide while they watch the ships and then Watch gets the idea to try and communicate with them. Once he does that everything gets a bit messy.

Watch and Adam get taken in the first ship and not long after they are followed in the second by Cindy and Sally. Why they end up on the ships to begin with is an interesting story. It is even more interesting when they get where they are going and things are pieced together. I think this was an interesting adventure for them to go on and I enjoyed the way in which it was all explained.

I really am enjoying reading these books. I am certain any child that is introduced to them will be able to enjoy them as well. They get to go on cool adventures that can sometimes be categorized as risky or dangerous. I think the adventures make for some good stories though and because of that I don’t think there will ever be a dull moment in Spooksville.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
