When James explores the back garden of his parents' new country home, he is amazed to meet a pixie called William living in the mulberry tree! William shows James a magical way to speak to animals and shrink or grow to their size. James is able to use these tricks to help both creatures and humans in need. He must keep this magic a secret because if his parents find out, the powers will stop working! Featuring illustrations by Kitty Wigmore, James and the Pixie will teach children the values of love and kindness.
