KIRKUS REVIEW

When Suzy and Sandy christen a compost pile ""Miracle Mountain"", and stake their claim with a tomato plant, they never suspect that the plant will become a Tall Tomato Tree, and that Greenie, Teenie and will descend from the planet, Veta, to spend their vacation there. The visitors are light-green and full of magic tricks, and all five children spend an exciting summer doing all the things young people wish they could do. They fly through the air; they explore the Tall Tomato Tree; they visit the seashore and go for rides in a spaceship. The young, green visitors become heroes when one saves a movie audience from a burning theatre and another wins a ball game by hitting the winning home run...While neither scientific nor imaginative, the book will delight young people because they will identify with the pranks and prowlings of these Green Rangers.
