I, TRIXIE, WHO IS DOG
FROM #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR DEAN KOONTZ I, TRIXIE, WHO IS DOG
#1 New York Times bestselling author and master of suspense Dean Koontz pays tribute to his beloved golden retriever, Trixie, in this fresh and funny manifesto of a dog’s fabulous life: I, TRIXIE WHO IS DOG, illustrated by Janet Cleland (G.P. Putnam’s Sons; 9780399251962; On sale October 29, 2009; Ages 5-8 / Grades K-3; 32 pages; $16.99).
According to Trixie, not everyone is cut out to be a dog. Some must be cats (to entertain dogs), some must be cows (so that dogs can have ice cream), and some must be sheep (for dogs to herd them). But Trixie is a dog and joyously herself. And what is the thrill in being a dog? The bliss of kibble! The joy of belly rubs! The dream of one day being able to drive a car across the country with her best friend Jinx? Of course, because Trixie is a dog with a big imagination and oodles of self-esteem.
With whimsical illustrations, quirky humor, and an irrepressible spirit, I, TRIXIE WHO IS DOG will delight readers young and old!
All author proceeds will be donated to the assistance dog non-profit organization Canine Companions for Independence.
