Meet Spencer: a little mouse with big dreams. He's got exciting plans for the royal ball just like his friend Cinderella. In Spencer's case, he hopes to sneak into the ball and eat all the food on the buffet. But when Cinderella's fairy godmother turns Spencer and his sister Mitzi into horses, mouse and human dreams collide! How will Spencer sneak into the ball now? And will Spencer's crazy improvising make or break Cinderella's big night with the Prince? A fresh, frivolous take on a time-honored fairy tale, Cinderella's Mice shows that even the smallest characters in a story can make a big difference, and that being a good friend can bring great rewards.
