My Pixie Dixie tells the story of a girl and her family members who learn an important life lesson from a man whittling toy boats at the local marina. It's a story about relationships and finding what we need in life by letting go of the things that hold us back. The story touches on the importance of connecting with others and contributing to society. Elements of love gratitude friendship and the fear of loss all figure prominently. We're all in the same boat so we might as well enjoy the ride.
