While Kijik is rescued early-on in the adventure, Kuya is not so fortunate and faces one life threatening challenge after another as he attempts to find his way eleven miles across Anchorage. This unique city, carved from a wilderness that still intertwines with shopping centers and suburbs, presents seemingly insurmountable obstacles, threats and adventures for any dog, especially one so young and inexperienced, but it is the path home if Kuya can puzzle out the intricacies of the many intersecting trails and survive the dangers and challenges he encounters on his odyssey.
Told from his own youthful point of view, "Kuya Kai" is a coming of age novel for early adolescent readers and adults, as well. A great "read aloud" adventure, the whole family will laugh at Kuya's innocent perceptions and cheer him on as, despite his injuries and fear, he discovers the strength and courage to find his way home to his beloved Cindy. The online pictures can be used while reading the story to identify action from chapter to chapter.

Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. OK I got this book for a great price and I was interested as I have a chow. I could see some of the same breed traits my dog has in little Kuya Kai. Overall a good quick read.
I use to have a Chow Chow, so this was really a cute book, I did enjoy it, but it was a little on the childish style, but that's ok we all need to touch our inner child now and then. For those of you that love your pets this story will keep you reading till you have finished the story.

The discussions between Kuya, her loving owner, and fellow creatures left me curious as to my own dogs reaction when I tell her those "Magic Words". I hope to hear more about Kuya Kai and friends in the future.
This is a wonderful heartfelt story! It keeps you bouncing between laughter, tears, worry, and relief. What an amazing true story about 2 great dogs!
