Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 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

From Booklist

Magic Trixie may be the big sister, but her family pays more attention to baby Abby Cadabra and, she’s convinced, doesn’t let her have any fun. At Monstersorri School, everyone is going to be doing something special for show-and-tell, but they’ve already seen all the magic spells that Trixie knows. She feels she has to do something that will make everyone go Wow! but none of the adults will allow her to touch the big magic wand, the magic cauldron, or the spell book. What can she do? Finally, she remembers she knows one more spell: making something disappear. In this graphic novel, Thompson has created a loving, close family and a great group of friends and classmates of Trixie’s that also happen to be witches, monsters, vampires, mummies, werewolves, and ghosts. Bright colors and a whimsical style make everything friendly rather than scary. Underneath the supernatural trappings lies a classic story of sibling envy to which every big sister and big brother can relate. Grades 3-5. --Kat Kan

To answer the lettering and coloring questions... Jason Arthur was hired by me to create a font from my own hand lettering and then letter the Magic Trixie books.
I paint all the illustrations on the page myself. The process goes from pencil drawing to color with no actual 'inking' at all. By that I mean there is no india ink used. It is all watercolor with a watercolor painted line in lieu of the traditional comic book 'inking'.
I hope that helps fill in the gaps as far as color and technique.

Format: Paperback
You know how you'll be prepared to dislike something and then, through no fault of your own, you are forced to take a close and in-depth look at the very thing you were trying to avoid? Well there was nothing about the cover or premise of "Magic Trixie" that initially appealed to me. First off, it was being sold as a graphic novel that would appeal to the "Babymouse" set. And since I am "Babymouse" faithful, this was not an appealing notion to me. Then to look at it, the book is colorful. Incredibly colorful. Garishly colorful? It was difficult to say, but I wasn't feeling optimistic. But through one occurrence or another I was sent my own copy of "Magic Trixie" a book that may well be the first in a series but that works perfectly well as its own stand alone story. To my surprise (heck delight) I found the story strong and the metaphor (oh yeah, I'm gonna talk "metaphors" about nine-year-old graphic novels) consistent. "Magic Trixie" is one of those comics that sneak up on you. Cleverer than you'd suspect and smarter than the average comic book, this is a story that's going to get itself some fans whether or not it's the Halloween season or not.

Today could probably be called a bad day, from Magic Trixie's point of view. As always, her new baby sister is hogging everyone's attention. Her grandpa beat her down the stairs so she has to eat prune pancakes for breakfast, her dad won't drive her to work, she brought the wrong lunch to school, and now to top it all off next week is show-and-tell week and Trixie doesn't have anything she can do to impress her friends. That is, until she gets a cunning plan. A plan that goes wrong in all the right ways.

The artwork is spell-binding, grabbing your attention right off the bat. But it is the story that is truly great. The set of characters that Jill Thompson has created is unique and wonderful. The story <lesson> is geared for children but is enjoyable to adults, too, because of Trixie, her family and friends. I can't wait to see what other adventures this young witch gets in to. A definite gift giving book for the nieces and nephews.
