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!

Bestselling author Dean Koontz gives readers a fun, lighthearted glimpse into the imagination of Trixie, his beloved golden retriever, whose quirky narration and irrepressible spirit will delight readers young and old.

I, Trixie, who is dog, is a part of the Auryn line from Auryn Inc. and is based on Dean Koontz's book by the same name, with illustrations by Janet Cleland.

Key features include
★Personalisation of picture, voice and text:
★Children can double up as illustrators of this book app by coloring Trixie herself, the background layouts, and other elements in every page using bright vibrant colours.
★Kids can become their own narrator or listen to their parents narrate the book.
★Interactivity allows kids to personalize the sentence and write their own version of the story!
★Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image is touched the associated word is spoken and the written word displayed.
★Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted.
★Touch a word to hear it being spoken.
Three ways to read the book.
★"Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects till they are ready to move to the next page.
★"Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud.
★"Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience.
