Fun and funny, it's so nice to share a creative, original story with my kiddos! Thanks, Disney, for sending us a copy in exchange for an honest review. It was the perfect dose of laughter we needed!

You've gotta buy both books! What a fun story that comes full circle, in Company's Coming, the aliens visit the Earth (with consequences) and in Company's Going, the the Humans visit the aliens. I love the message that everyone is more afraid about what they don't know than what is actually happeni

The sequel to COMPANY'S COMING actually ranked higher in my book than the first. We pick up just where we left off....the dinner party is over, all the "guests" have gone home, and the alien visitors want to take Shirley and Moe to their home planet...but it's not exactly what you think. A case of mistaken identity, a few ray gun shots, and a whole lot of meatball making magic later, and we close scene with a tear filled goodbye, and a reminder once again that not everything is what it at first ...more

After the nice dinner, Shirley and Moe's visitors ask them to cater their sister's wedding , and serve those delicious meatballs. When they arrive on the planet Nextoo, a nervous Uncle Irving zaps them with his ray gun. After they wake up, and discover the zap has cured their arthritis, Shirley made so many meatballs in one day, that the entire planet attended the wedding, and enjoyed them.

Still fun, although not quite up to the quality of Company's Coming. In some of the illustrations, Shirl looks slightly deranged. The story is somewhat more complicated as Moe and Shirl travel to Nextoo to cater the spacemen's sister's wedding.

It reads hilariously! I'd read it first without the kids to get the tone down, but when they get to the planet there's the most hilarious line used... "Well clip my toenails! I didn't know!" My kids (7, 5, and 2)made me read about 12 times and giggled hysterically ever.single.time.

Love how wacky this story is--wacky characters, wacky situation, wacky sense of humor.

I seriously have no sense of humor. I thought this book was silly but not in a good way. In some ways I guess I could see kids thinking it was cute, but I would still question that.
