The art and story are both by Jill Thompson, who worked with Neil Gaiman on The Sandman, among others things, and I liked her art there, so that is the reason I read this particular volume, out of sequence, actually, but I think I figured what is going on in the world. The other reason I read it is because the other two volumes were moving around the house, so I pick one up occasionally. There's so much out there now, and much it is good--Amulet, Nimona, Lumberjanes… I can't quite keep up. I ...more
Magic Trixie longs for a dragon to call her own, and comes close to disaster after her "frenemy" tells the other kids that Trixie already has one. The drawings are colorful and expressive--from the richly detailed circus scenes to Trixie's lonely cat. The wide variety of panel sizes and shapes help to convey movement and keep the reader engaged. My only quibble is that Trixie's senior citizen grandmother dresses like a go-go witch.

Magic Trixie and the Dragon was a 3.5 to 4 star book for my niece, nephew and me. I checked the book out for my niece, but it was my nephew who asked if we could read this. It involved dragons, you see, and to a four year old boy dragons are pretty cool.

My niece likes Magic Trixie, and she likes books in graphic novel format. Trixie seemed a little more grown up in this issue (like my niece), and more is being expected of her (like my niece). My niece shares Trixie's growing pains--my girl could

Magic Trixie and the Dragon is the third graphic novel in Jill Thompson's Magic Trixie collection. With even more twists & turns Thompson gives another adorable story with wonderful artwork and quirky attention to details.

The story follows Trixie in her quest to find a dragon. In the midst of her nearly impossible quest, she is learning how to do special tricks with her wand, like change her baby sisters diaper. As usual, Trixie gets into a little trouble but learns a valuable lesson when h

This is the third book in the Magic Trixie series by Jill Thompson. We enjoyed the first two books in the series and our oldest was excited to see that there were more books featuring Trixie.

This is a dramatic, but somewhat scattered tale about dragons and being careful what you ask for. The story is entertaining, but it wasn't my favorite of the series so far. Our girls just adopted kittens, and they couldn't imagine how anyone could ignore Scratch, since he's so adorable.

The illustrations are

The story is a fun look at being careful what you wish for and treating your friends right and not taking them for granted. With dragons.

The art and story in this book are very engaging and charming. There is so much detail in every drawing, and yet you never really feel overwhelmed by the art and while some of the dialog is a bit simplistic it fits the character well.

And it has dragons. You can never go wrong with dragons.

I love Magic Trixie! She's fun, she's magical, and she gets into all kinds of scrapes. In her third adventure, she really, really, really wants a dragon. Instead, she accidentally transforms her baby sister, Abby Cadabra, into a dragon. Oops. Defiantly the kind of thing parents tend to punish for. Lots of fun!

Part of the Magic Trixie series, in this installment, Trixie turns her baby sister into a dragon and her cat Scratches runs away to join the circus. Young readers who like graphic novels (like Babymouse) or who are looking for a story about magic or dragons will enjoy this one. The illustrations remind me of manga or anime.

Emme loves Magic Trixie and her adventures. Not as good as the second Magic Trixie, but worth a read.
I tend to start the Magic Trixie books hating the drawing, and end loving the whole thing. She's a very appealing character, and I really like the magical world she inhabits.
