No, it was "The Changeover" I was looking for.
Sequence of events:
) I find the Margaret Mahy shelf.
) I grab a few familiar titles, including "The Changeover".
) I accidentally knock some books off the shelf.
) In the confusion, I remember planning to grab "The Changeover", but
forget that I have already done so.
) I try, with no success, to find "The Changeover" on the shelf.
) I head to the catalogue, which says that "The Changeover" should be
on the shelf.
) I decide to head back to the shelf and have another look before
) On my way over to the shelf, I casually glance down at the books I'm
holding, and notice that one of them is "The Changeover".
) I feel silly.
