Magic Trixie Sleeps Over by Jill Thompson

Posted in Review at 6:28 am by Amber

In this story about Magic Trixie, she gets tired of her nightly bedtime routine.  Upon finding out her classmates don’t have to bathe or brush or brush their teeth she resents her parents.  Her friends offer to have her sleepover so she can see what they do.

As you can imagine, the night time rituals for a werewolf, frankstein, mummified princess and vampires are quite different from those of a little witch.

I love Jill Thompson’s artwork.  She can use facial expressions to convey what a character is thinking.  The drawings are detailed and vary between colored and black and white.  This is a cute book appropriate for younger readers.
