PIXER KNOWS! Caroline Farrell.2015
The classic Wizard of Oz meets myths and legends from the Celtic Tradition, PIXER KNOWS! tells the fantastical tale of young Irish Traveller boy, Mikey Joyce, 11, and his two best friends, Jaybee [Jacinta] and Paulie, whom together, enter the Otherworld of Pisreóga to track down an ancient Celtic warrior, Fionn MacCumhaill.
Their quest – to persuade the reluctant hero to help them rescue a displaced princess, free the children of Pisreóga from the evil druid Dowan, and in so doing, realize Mikey’s dream to become a great storyteller.

“What a wonderfully engaging and entertaining tale you’ve woven here! Your script has all the elements of a classic children’s fantasy: an unlikely hero, a cruel and heartless villain, a colorful cast of anthropomorphized animals, and a legendary warrior who has to be reminded of what’s worth fighting for. I think you’ve crafted a story that children will truly love, and I especially liked the hilariously whimsical name that Mikey chose for Pixer.”
