But Grizelda the witch wants to spoil everyone's fun and her servants, the Boggits, trick little Molly Twinkletail into running away from the party. It's up to the girls to find her - but where in Friendship Forest would a tiny mouse hide?

It's Ellie Featherbill's birthday, and she's having a party at her houseboat home on Willowtree River. But Grizelda has a wicked plan to poison the river, and orders the Boggits to steal the Featherbills' barge - with Ellie still on board! Can Lily and Jess save the little duckling and stop the Boggits?
