The fear of losing your sight is real. Nan showed Joshua, an dventurous ten-year-old living on a farm, how to focus on his other senses and find his independence. In the grief that followed her death, Joshua’s confidence faded. Then an unlikely friendship struck with pixie siblings, Pax and Peri, rekindled the excitement of his farmyard treks. Joshua, with this restored independence, finds happiness again.
Follow the adventures of vision-impaired Joshua, his pixie friends, Peri and Pax, and an alpaca named Alvie, as they recover a kite that has blown near a creek. Joshua and friends encounter many obstacles on their quest, not least, the mischievous cousin Colton, a rival pixie and two alpaca rustlers.
