Seekers of the Dogazoids
Seekers of the Dogazoids is the story of wayward aliens who wind up on planet Earth by accident, a fuel crisis. They can change their appearance via shape-shifting and are quite intelligent. But they know nothing about this planet or the beings who live here, us humans. The one thing they do know is that they need fuel for their ship. So they set about seeking fuel while trying to fit into a small town atmosphere, not doing very well at first. But they learn and get better at it. Although the aliens don't get real good at fitting in, they do just enough to proceed with their mission, narrowly averting disaster several times. Humans are not the stars of this story. It's a story of a different race who didn't plan on being here but had to make the best of their bad situation.
