This graphic novel strikes me more as a scrapbook from days gone by. The author never knew her Great-Grandfather but with the help of relatives, magic museums, and the internet she was able to put a time line to her grandfather's life. One of the reasons that I enjoyed this one so much is the genealogical aspect. I love researching my family heritage and Fleming's background is colorful. Her research took her to Australia, China, Hungary...she was a globe-trotter for sure. I learned a lot about the traveling magic shows and vaudeville back in its heyday and this graphic novel gives you a fascinating look into this time period!
