"Jack Creedle's "no-account" Uncle Bud, an inventor, has been tinkering with something in the barn again... and a spaceship full of spidery aliens has arrived to steal it. The aliens, called skreeps, kidnap Jack, Uncle Bud, and a pair of stranded motorists and whisk them away to Planet Skreepia, and Earth's fate rests in the captives' hands. Illustrated with plenty of drawings of various alien creatures and full of pell-mell adventure, this humorous science fiction yarn set in the 1950s is sure to entertain."
