Review by

William and Daniel Seward's parents disappear one day -- and eventually the boys learn that their parents are the guardians of a secret intergalactic portal (out of their basement). The mystery of where the parents have gone is eventually solved, but meanwhile William has learned that he has inherited a knack for taking care of (intergalactic) guests. The perfect space-age hotelier!
