Magic Trixie by Jill Thompson

Magic Trixie

In Magic Trixie the reader is introduced to who else but Magic Trixie, her family and her friends.  Magic Trixie is a sassy little witch.  The first floor of her house is home to Elixir, a restaurant run by her parents and a cousin.  She attends Monstersorri School. 

Show-and-Tell starts in a few days and she’s stumped on what to bring.  Her friends have all seen her magic tricks.  Trixie’s family tells her she’s not responsible enough or too young to bring in some of their magic items.  Her baby sister gets to do whatever she wants; Abby’s so young the family considers it harmless when she flips through the big spell book or chews on a magic wand.

I’ve been a fan of Jill Thompson’s since her book Scary Godmother was released over a decade ago.  Her stories are engaging (I didn’t see the ending to this one coming) and her artwork is wonderful.  Each panel is detailed and I find myself looking at them more than once to find things I missed.
