Synopsis

What’s that rustling in the bushes?

It’s nearly time for lights-out but Benny just won’t settle down — and his sister, Penny, is becoming very annoyed. The moon has gone missing, there’s a flashlight to play with, and Benny must go find his favorite Pirate hat . . . inside the dark and spooky playhouse in the backyard. Geoffrey Hayes’s loveable mice are back — and they’re about to find out just how many adventures can be packed in before bedtime.
