Pixie Hart is a little girl with a very special ability. When she truly believes in something, it comes true! Her strong sense of self-belief has been instilled in her since she was a baby – but it does mean that some of the people in her town think she’s a little bit odd and she doesn’t seem to have many friends.
One day she goes on a school trip which involves a long hike in to the woods. They walk for miles and miles until the teacher realises that they are lost. All of the children start to panic and even the teacher is worried that they might not be able to find their way back. What on earth are they going to do?
Pixie steps forward with an idea. She thinks that if all of the children hold hands in a circle and concentrate really hard on being rescued then someone will come. It seems like a crazy idea – could it possibly work?
This is a lovely little book about the power of positive thinking and self belief. Obviously, in real life Pixie wouldn’t actually be able to summon a Forest Ranger with her mind! However her positive way of thinking brings a sense of calm to the group and holds them together while they wait – which is a great lesson for your child.
We love the wide-eyed illustrations, which show the full extent of Pixie’s colourful imagination.
