Welcome to Pixiehaven, a world bursting with magic!

Oona Blu has always known she isn’t your average boring pixie.  She wears flowers in her shoes and paintbrushes in her hair, and has a serious love of stripes.  Even her companion, Hattie, isn’t the usual pixie cat – she’s a rainbow-coloured hedgehog.

Oona wants nothing more than to care for one of the flower families.  But she’s worried that being different means she won’t be chosen.  Have the bullies been right about her all along?  Or will Oona’s pixie dream come true.

Written and illustrated by Katrina McIntyre
