Strange things happen in Mrs. Beehive’s garden, the otherwise tranquil home of Sam Stripe: at first, the eggs of the breeding bird parents disappear and then the hatchlings are kidnapped! Sam Stripe is extremely worried.

In the dive bar that is run by the shrew mouse behind the rain barrel, Sam Stripe and his friends Mole, rabbit Ali, the two dormice Flip and Flop and bat Shakira forge out a plan to outsmart the bird thief. An exciting adventure in, above, underneath and behind the garden of Mrs. Beehive!
