    1. This book will have you and your class laughing out loud together. The images and the text complement each other perfectly; allowing you to look at the picture, read the text and then look back up at the picture and that's when the laughter usually occurs. The main character, an alien teacher, decides to teach their class about Earth hounds (aka: dogs). They go on to explain what they think are the most important characteristics of dogs such as being able to jump as high as roast beef! I highly [...]

    3. An absolute hoot.I collect children's books because I love the illustrations - and Tony Ross is a brilliantly sassy artist. One of my favourite.

I just wish I could show you the illustration which accompanies the undercarr [...]

    4. This book is an addition to the comical ‘Dr Xargle’s book of…’ series. This book takes a unique look ‘Earthlings’ and ‘Earthlings’ best friend ‘Earth hounds’ from the perspective of aliens. This book allows the reader and audience to take a step back and laugh at the silly things we do and the really strange concept of inviting a wild animal into our home and making it one of the family. Once again I think this book is a great way to address misconceptions that could be creat [...]

    5. Full of understated misinterpretations and over the top Tony Ross illustrations, this book is as hilarious for adults as it is for children. If your library doesn’t have a copy, we suggest swimming to the U.K. to find one. It’s worth the trip.Listen to our chat about this book on our JustOneMoreBook Children's Book Podcast:justonemorebook/2006/1

    6. Science Fiction - This book was delightful and a great way to introduce young readers to the genre. The alien professor is teaching his class about dogs and gets most of his facts straight. Definitely, one I would read aloud to my students
