As her parents rally round Grandad, Betsy slips away to see the show. But Betsy isn't the only one enjoying the spectacle - her forty-four mice have escaped and seem intent on joining in! As the mice gatecrash the magic act, disaster strikes and Betsy finds herself facing up to the odious ringmaster with a lot of explaining to do...
