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
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...more
I, Trixie, Who is Dog, Dean Koontz (Putnam/Penguin, 32 pages, 2009, $16.99, ages 5 and up)

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...more

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.
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!
