Not everyone can be a dog. Some must be people. Some must be cats, or birds, or even skunks, although it?s hard to explain why anyone would want to be a skunk. But Trixie is happy, because she does get to be a dog?the best thing there is to be. The food, the belly rubs . . . if only she could drive, her life would be perfect!

I, Trixie, Who is Dog

I, Trixie, Who is Dog
by Dean Koontz

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention parents of little ones and elementary teachers, August 13, 2013

This review is from: I, Trixie, Who is Dog (Hardcover)
I requested this book at my library not realizing that it was a children's book. Just finished reading and reviewing Dean Koontz's book/CD on Trixie, which I highly recommend. Then along comes a children's book about Trixie and other pets. Well I just scratched my head and read it!

Loved it. It

I, Trixie, is another must-have book in the Trixie ‘series’ (some were even written by Trixie the Golden Retriever herself).

Although it is hard to make absolutely every single page in a children’s book specially fun and funny and unique and thought-provoking, Koontz manages to do a good job on many pages – enough to make the book memorable.

With the unique sentence structure (or unstructure) that is unique

Seems like a lot of the reviewers did not read it to a kiddo... My 2 year old daughter thinks this book is hilarious and "so silly". I know it is a hit when we read it about 5x in a row.

A tribute to the family dog, and a fun read for puppy loving children. The language was at times awkward, and other times flowed. It attempted at times to be lyrical, then would fail. But the illustrations were smart and funny and my daughter loved pointing out the dog on each page. Bought on a whim since this book supports Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), and my daughter can't resist a "puppy book". It's a win-win, even if it sounds a bit strange.
Beautifully illustrated, adorable kids book, about Dean Koontz' dog, Trixie. I love books about golden retrievers, as it reminds me of our beloved golden, Cassie. Koontz' has a wonderful way of describing a dog's life with such humor and insight. Share it with your kids.

I have not read any of the adult versions or Dean Koontz blog, so I was not familiar with these, but I do think kids will like this from the dog's point of view. The humor is slightly strange and may particularly appeal to older children.
I read this just to say that I'd read it as it's Dean Koontz, but I can't really say it's good, though I'm not the intended audience! The REAL Trixie was a wonderful dog though, and I would recommend reading A Big Little Life instead.
This is really cute too but I'm afraid to use it at storytime because of the word "butt." Although that was the page where I LOL'd. It is kinda weird though that some pages rhyme and some do not.

funny and sweet, it was a unique book in regards to it's sentence structure. It was a pleasant read for both me and my son.
Does capture a dogs point of view, but its hard to get my mind around the unique grammar.
I thought the "quirky narration" was hard to follow and disjointed.

I guess I just didn't get this book.
So cute! I loved this book!
