    "Alien Dogs Rule"This was a fun story to read, it was so innovative! The first two chapters had me wondering if I could endure this story, but after reading on, Chapter 3 really drew me to the story of Clem, a member of the alien clan known as Kaxians, from the planet Kax. They came to this earth specifically to be miners of jex (which I never really understood what it was, but maybe it was really prehistoric bones?!) Their competitors were from Nique, also in pursuit of the treasured jex. What' [...]

    “Dog Aliens 1: Raffle’s Name” by Cherise Kelley is an amusing tale narrated by Raffles, currently living in his 99th dog body. You see, Raffles is not from Earth. In fact, NO dog originally is from Earth. Aliens from two planets came to Earth eons ago to mine a substance needed on their home planets; a substance completely unknown and unnecessary to humans. This element is called “Jex” by the aliens. The two alien species, and their home planets, are the Kaxians from Kax; and the Nique [...]

    I was sent a review copy of Dog Aliens 1 and although it really wasn't my kind of story, it was unique and creative and I decided it deserved a decent rating anyway for a couple of reasons.First, the book is well-written. I've seen enough books by indie authors with poor grammar, spelling, and punctuation that I notice and appreciate it when a book is well-written.The second reason I've given the book a good rating despite the fact that I wasn't really into it is because I imagine that it would [...]

    Dog Aliens book 1 Raffle's Name is a good, fun book that every dog lover should pick up and read. I teach 5th grade and it will definitely be a new addition to my class library but adults will also enjoy the story for the following reasons.Have you ever wondered why your dog might go to a window and bark when nothing is there? Have you ever dragged your dog away while they sniffed the 50th bush on your walk? Finally, have you ever stopped what you were doing in order to pay some attention to you [...]

    I forgot how I first learned about this book, but I'm so glad it crossed my path. I am a dog lover 100%. Have grown up with them and have had my Keeshond Leo since he was 6 weeks old (he will be 13 at the end of June 2013). This book about dog aliens and their intelligence totally reminded me of Leo and his intelligence. Therefore the book was engaging and funny. Especially the interactions between the Kaxians (big dogs) and the Niques (small dogs). It reminds me of a crazy story a friend and I [...]

    I loved this story because of the pacing and that it is about dogs. I enjoyed how the author kept the writing simple, yet as mentioned in a previous review, engaging. The pacing was really great overall, but I felt it was especially good between the exchanges between the large dogs and small dogs. If you are a dog lover and want a book that is entertaining, then you will want to give this one a read!

    Such a cute book. I've always had a dog growing up and we currently own a 6yr old yellow lab/husky/shepherd that we adopted from the pound when she was 8 weeks old. I've always said there's a little being inside her and reading this book, I'm sure there is. You can just look in her eyes and see the wheels turning. Wonderful book for all ages.

    "Alien Dogs 1: Raffle's Name" is a delightfully innovative story about a dog who's an alien from outer space. With other Kaxians Clem's mission is to dig for jex so each day he escapes from his yard to help his friends mine the mineral and transport it to a space ship. But, one day he's late returning and the hole is discovered. Instead of being reprimanded his master abandons him and he's left to try and find his way back to his Kaxian friends. What begins is an exciting adventure as Clem not o [...]

    Okay to be completely honest I had low expectations for this book at the beginning. When I first saw it I figured it was going to be some goofy kids book about cats vs dogs and probably a waste of time but I thought about it for a moment and decided to give it a shot anyway and honestly I loved it. Its an adventure story of a puppy trying to find his place and to figure out his purpose in life. I honestly think it could possibly be written about a normal dog and be just as strong but it would be [...]

    ***Received Copy From Author***Read this book awhile ago but life kept me from writing a well deserved review (My apologizes to the Author).I started reading this book for my Godchildren who are animal loving freaks. They werent the only ones who loved it!Not only is this book ridiculously adorable and charming but makes valid points on the dog owning life and the importance being a responsible pet owner. All dogs are aliens but ankle biters are a different breed of alien from the bigger dogs (I [...]

    Dog adventures and space aliens create fun topics for stories - so what could be more fun than dog aliens from space.Children in families with dogs will enjoy reading about the double life of the dogs in Dog Aliens 1: Raffle’s Name. And children without dogs will be sure to beg their parents to bring them to the nearest animal shelter to adopt a dog.The story is packed with plenty of humor for a 4th grader to appreciate. And the chapters are perfect in length to keep the young reader engaged.T [...]

    I just finished up reading Dog Aliens 1: Raffle's Name. It was sent to me for review. As a teacher I read quite a bit of children's literature and found this book enjoyable. I think the kids will really enjoy connecting with Raffle/Clem and the explanation on why dogs do certain things. I love the thought of the mind movies that dogs play on/for their humans. This book does present some harsh realities in the animal world such as dumping of animals which is awful! But in this case, it does have [...]

    I really liked this book. It was humorous as well as informational about dogs. One thing I question is what is Jex? Why are the dogs mining it? I think this book would be a good one for children to read as well as one to read to children.(I think the story line is cute. Large dogs (Kaxians) from outer space and different from wolves. And that Raffle can send messages to humans and other animals (like the chicken incident and setting the pigeons on the Nigues (little dogs).I can't wait to read mo [...]

    I got this book from the Author in exchange for a review. If you ever wonder why your dog digs in the yard then this book will be fun for you to read and learn one of the possibilities why he or she is doing that. Having observed my dog in the yard many times it almost makes you believe this book could be true. I found it a unique and delightful read. I hope there will be many more adventures of Raffle and his new brother Oreo and the rest of the gang. You really don't have to be a dog lover to [...]

    This is a delightfully easy read and is so totally enchanting that it is a breath of fresh air. You can't help falling in love with the idea of the Kaxians and Niques (who cares about them anyway!)and the pages fly as you become immersed in this beautiful story. My granddaughter would love this story as would most young girls around the 8 yrs mark. It would also make a great book to read to children at bed time or as part of family together times

    I got this for my 12 year old, but we both wound up enjoying it! The storyline is fast-paced & well written so that it keeps you turning pages to see what is going to happen next. I wasn't sure how I would like a book written from an animal's point of view, but it's really entertaining! Cherise Kelley has a fantastic imagination & really brings Raffle & the other furry characters to life. I would definitely recommend this book for any dog lover!

    This was a really good book. It made me think differently about my dog. (Sadly she's a Nique.)It was really good. It was in the dogs view, which I love. I kinda wanted to read a dog story soon, so this book was a SRA(Start Right Away) book. I felt like he could have been in the wild a little bit more, but that doesn't really matter. Overall a very good book.

    Jane
    Raffle the alien dog narrates the delightful story in Dog Alien 1: Raffle's Name in a delightful way that makes him memorable as well as loveable. This dog centered adventure is perfect of us dog lovers and most anyone else as it is a good story. I liked that it is appropriate for young adults too. I enjoyed Raffle and all the delightful characters in this tale from space.

    Gail
    Very cute book. I knew dogs were smart, but I didn't know they came from outer space. If you love dogs and the things they do, you will love this book. The author did a great job writing this.

    Patricia
    Cute and interesting take on aliens among us. Loved it.

    Kim
    This is a cute story suitable for junior readers. It MADD me wonder about all the dogs we have had over the years. Maybe that's why I am not fond of little dogs the are Niques!

    When I got this I had no idea that it was aimed at children as nobody seems to have shelved it that way, so I was a bit annoyed to discover that when I opened the book to read it. I found myself wondering as I read the first few chapters if this kind of story would actually engage kids as it seems quite a complicated story with quite a few early info dumps.There are two gangs of dogs who have both come to this planet to mine something called Jex. I'm still not clear on what that actually is but [...]

    Read this to my daughter. We both liked it. It was quite entertaining and a unique story.

    I was given the opportunity to review this book for free in anticipation of the release of the second book. As a dog lover, I was intrigued by the title and couldn’t pass it up. The author Cherise Kelly was very imaginative in allowing the story to be written completely from inside of the dog’s mind. You are introduced to Clem, the dog whose mind you will be a passenger of for the remainder of the story. Clem is a reincarnated alien dog from outer space. He is on his 99th life and is a 6 mon [...]

    This review is a tricky one for me to write. Now, having finished the book I can say I liked it, I enjoyed reading it. But it did not start out that way! I received this book through first reads, and as such, felt an obligation to the author to read and review the book. I figured that a book about dogs from outer-space would be a fun one to read to my children, as we often read middle grade chapter books together. So A few days after this book arrived in the mail we began reading it. We all had [...]

    Primeiro tenho de dizer que gostei do livro e que estive muito indecisa entre dar 2 ou 3* no entanto optei por nao dar maior cotação e já vou explicar porque. Este livro conta a história do Raffle um cão, que é também um alien, ou melhor todos os cães são aliens! Os cães de grande porte são conhecidos por Kaxians e os pequeninos por Niques ( eu tenho de dizer que tenho um de cada e eles se dão super bem) no livro estas duas frações diferentes estão em guerra uma com a outra e não [...]

    It seems the dogs we know are much more than we think. These domesticated “pets” are actually two races of aliens here on earth to follow their duties, honor Kax and mine the earth for jex they could send back to their home planet. Clem is a young puppy finding his purpose and doing his best to honor his alien heritage.The story from there goes into an exciting journey in Clem’s early life. He discovers there is more to his world and his purpose with his alien counterparts and humans than [...]
