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.
It’s bedtime for the mouseling brother and sister—but not before plenty of horsing around and a deliciously scary expedition into the backyard... Another outing positively radiant with child appeal, featuring a pair of close siblings with complementary personalities. —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
