Dog Aliens 1 Raffle's Name by Cherise Kelley

Clem is a six month old puppy with a secret: he is an alien from outer space.

When he gets abandoned in the mountains, he meets a she wolf and discovers an odd talent that he has for manipulating the thoughts of others: wolves, other dog aliens like himself, and even humans. This talent comes in handy when he finds himself in a cage at the animal shelter, but Clem's about to find out why he has this talent, and what he's supposed to do with it.

This is a happy dog story where the dog still lives at the end. It intends to amuse dog lovers of all ages. The reading level is about fourth grade. Children aged 9 and older should be able to read it on their own. All of the content is rated G and appropriate for all ages.

About the Author:

Cherise Kelley grew up in a family of teachers. Her father, Ronald Morris, taught at Arcadia High School in Southern California. Her mother teaches new parents about the special needs of their premature infants. Her sister, Kristine Morris White, is a grand prix level dressage horse trainer.

Mrs. Kelley became a teacher herself in 1991 through a "fifth year" of study after earning her bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of California at Berkeley. She has taught English at the college, high school, and middle school level but prefers to substitute so that she has time for her writing.

Cherise lives near Spokane, Washington with her husband and two dogs named Raffle and Oreo, who inspire her Dog Aliens novels. All of her books are optimistic and rated G.
