The Musical Magic of Pixanne:

with her pals Joey Jabberdrag, Wendy Witch, and Oggie Owl

Truly, an unbelievable musical experience. 

Jane, as Pixanne and Wendy ... and maybe everyone else, takes you on a trip through the Magic Forest, where she meets friends, sings songs and tells stories.

Joey Jabberdrag is really happy, just because it's a happy day!

Wendy Witch zips in on her Witchmobile (luckily she is a good witch, not the bad Hansel & Gretel kind) and tells us of her trip to the EEP EEP Planet. "There all kinds of strange creatures that live on the EEP EEP Planet".

All the singing wakes cranky Oggie Owl up ... but he cheers right up and joins in!

Listening to this album was an incredible trip back in time. A very special day, indeed.
