5.0 out of 5 stars Very Creative December 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First let me say that I absolutely love the title "It's A Ruff Life" which I thought was very unique considering it's a story, no adventure about dogs. Most everyone loves dogs, yet my son has always been timid of them, even the smallest and friendliest of them so when I see a book about dogs, I'm more tempted to get it for him so he can feel more comfortable with dogs.

This book is much more than the usual kids book, as it's a novel with a storyline which takes some time to read. When I stopped reading for a night, my son was anxious and excited to continue the story the next night. It's a Ruff Life was fun to read and listen to. The storyline was very creative giving the children something to think about and anticipate what might be next. It introduced imagination of being these characters, Max and Bella.

We will surely be waiting on the next book the author B. R. Tracey, good work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo! Kids Will Love This Book! December 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
B R Tracey knows how to write a book that reads like a movie adventure. Kids today, you know, are all visual and interactive. They want stories that thrill them and get them involved. This book does that well. First, making a dog the hero, and he is a dog plus more than a dog, if you know what I mean, wins a kid's heart. Then, starting the book with an action sequence gets the kids heart beating and they want to read more. Having the child's attention, you can now more easily lead him through the slower parts, the plot scheme and the clue finding, so that the kid appreciates a deeper story than a shallow action film can give him or her. My kids love the way I read it to them, too. I appreciate that, because I love to entertain my kids and be their hero. Bravo B R! Keep writing and we'll keep reading them to our kids!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Ruff Life is a great read! February 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My kids love stories about dogs, especially those who have exciting adventures like in It's a Ruff Life. Bella is high maintenance yet fun to watch while Max has all the gadgets anyone would want for a life of adventure and thrills. These characters are well-developed and are engaging for the readers. Both have their own story to tell but they are intertwined beautifully.
If your child is a fan of the television cartoon on the Hub called "Pound Puppies", they will love reading about the dogs and action in "It's a Ruff Life"!

5.0 out of 5 stars We loved it! February 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My granddaughter chose this book as a treat when I picked her up after school.

I personally loved the cover so I was as eager as she was to read it.

We laughed and laughed as we read through this story.

Max is brilliantly created and Bella in her own high maintenance way is fabulous.

This is a rollicking read with lots of laughs along the way.

I’d love to see this evolve into a series of books.

Thumbs Up (or Paws Up) all the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for children! December 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tracey did a great job writing this book. Both my two youngest (4 and 6) and I really enjoy it! It's a lot different than other children's book that I have read to my children. It's fun and not too intense for the young ones. Usually the books are very simplistic and they don't really engage the reader. My son and daughter were constantly wanting me to read this to them! I am very happy with the purchase and will be referring it to my friends with young children. Highly recommend!

More About the Author

B. R. Tracey would like to let you into a little secret. She's never been a spy, secret agent (we know, one and the same thing) or an anamorphic dog. If she had, she would never have been able to write such crazy books.

She can't claim that she has a black belt in any martial arts. The only black belt she has is the one to keep her trousers up while doing yoga.

It is her desire to experience every activity that the dogs get up to in the books; so far she has managed six, still a long, long, long way to go. Unfortunately she can't share which ones as it will spoil all your fun finding out what the dogs get up to.

In fact B. R. Tracey has quite a normal life. She lives in a Leicestershire village with her family.
