Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lesley Moore Vossen
Trixie is a small witch who is not happy that she is, according to her parents, too young to do the things she wants—cast spells with the spell book or use a magic wand, for example—while her baby sister seems to get all the attention. Trixie needs to find some way to impress her friends at her school's show and tell. These friends include a monster whose body parts come off occasionally, a small mummy who sends notes in school in the form of hieroglyphs, twin vampires who can't go out even with sunblock and a werewolf. The adults who inhabit Trixie's world are equally interesting like her teacher at school who appears to be semi-transparent. And then there is Trixie's grandmother, who dresses like something from Miami Beach, with gold jewelry, a purple snakeskin belt and cheetah-design platform boots. Trixie, with the help of her talking black cat, comes up with a plan in this cross between a graphic novel and a comic book. Few words on each busy and brightly colored page make for an easy read that should be appealing to young witch and ghoul lovers. Reviewer: Lesley Moore Vossen

Gr 3-5

With a charming amount of sass, Magic Trixie starts her week on the wrong side of the bed. First, her baby sister ruins her chance for cloudberry pancakes. Then she finds out she has to do show-and-tell at the end of the week. As time goes on, Trixie frets about what to take to school. Finally, she decides to take her sister and show everyone a neat disappearing spell. That would solve two problems at once. Frantic, silly, and earnest, Trixie is a delightful little witch. Her dead-on expressions will leave all kids laughing in the aisles, quick to share her stories. The playful art and bright colors splashed on the page bring the child and her supernatural friends to life.-Sadie Mattox, DeKalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA
