Wayne Hicks about this book: Trixie is nine years old, and her Daddy is a famous stage magician. She's been around magic and illusion all ehr life, and as young as she is, she already knows most of the ways the fascinating tricks work! But then she finds herself snatched away from her Daddy and her step-mother, away from her home and friends, and even from her world, and taken to the land of PerAmbras! There she meets a woman who seems to be made of glass, and learns that she herself is a Princess who might one day inherit the Throne... except that the transparent woman is her aunt, who murdered Trixie's real Mom in order to steal the Throne from her! That's why her Daddy had taken her and fled to our world, to hide Trixie from the evil aunt who wanted to kill them and solidify her own claim to the Kingdom!
But Trixie knows that Daddy is coming, and an old friend of his helps her to escape from the castle tower in which she's imprisoned. They all race across PerAmbras, but miss each other, and at last it becomes clear that the only hope they have is to join forces with elves, ogres and men to rebel, and Little Trixie is the most important warrior in the battle!
Magic Trixie and the Crystal Witch has been read by men, women and children, and all of them ahve raved about it! The story of courage in the face of unbeatable odds, they say reminds them of a cross between "The Wizard of Oz" and "The Lord of the Rings".
