Magic Trixie and the Dragon

Magic Trixie and the Dragon Cover 

Magic Trixie’s adventures continue in Jill Thompson’s Magic Trixie and the Dragon.  She goes to the circus with one of her grandmothers.  The show under the big top features dragon riders.  When her grandmother asks Magic Trixie what she would like as a souvenir, Magic Trixie gives an answer without hesitation.  A dragon!

Her grandmother explains it is out of the question.  Dragons are expensive, endangered and are too messy to keep in the house.  This doesn’t keep Magic Trixie from still wanting one.  While practicing transmogrification on her little sister’s diaper the unbelievable happens.  A dragon appears!

Magic Trixie learns valuable lessons about friendship in this story.  Like the other Magic Trixie books, this is appropriate for children and adults.  The illustrations don’t necessarily need words in every panel to convey the characters’ feelings.
