Well, I finally found a copy of Magic Trixie in a bookstore.
Was it on the 'Halloween table display?' Was it in the 'Children's Humor' or 'Children's non-fiction" as it was labled in the computer? Were there sections in the Children's Books area that even corresponded to those headings? Why no! When I finally coralled an employee he took me over to the graphic novel corner, by the emergency exit. And lo and behold there she was! Nestled in amongst the Marvel Graphic novels. Do ya think a mom with a toddler might accidentally make her way over there and then find it..? Me neither! It made me all grumpy and want to do a shot of bourbon. And it was all drizzly and feh outside that day. Which gave me frizzy hair. I was in a mood. Then I looked up and saw that I was in fine company...This should also be out on a seasonal display table! Or, how about a graphic novel table? Everything else gets a new release table...or a featured books table. That would be a good way to show a selection of the material available in this medium!
