Pixie and the Bees

Once upon a time Pixie inadvertently swallowed a swarm of angry bees. She tried everything to get them to leave but they hung on tight and filled her entire body with buzzing. No one else could see or hear or feel them and they could not understand what was wrong or how to help. Pixie was alone in her pain until one day...


I felt like it was written for me, it spoke right to my heart.

If you’ve ever lived with an invisible illness, as many of us have, you will understand why I instantly fell in love with this book.

This book is excellent for helping kids (and adults) to recognize that anxiety can present itself in many ways, and it's so painful and frustrating when no one else can see what's happening in your body. I recommend this for anyone who knows a child who struggles with anxiety as it helps to demonstrate that the anxiety isn't who they are, its something that they experience, and there's hope to feel better!

...a by-product of your book is that in helping yourself you will be helping others.

Erica's capacity for story telling combined with the beautiful imagery by Brooklin define this as a classic in the making.

Thank you for helping explain how I feel sometimes. I couldn't explain it myself but the buzzing of the bees sure did.
