This sing-along story tells what happens when little bunny Foo Foo does not listen to the Good Fairy. It seems little bunny Foo Foo just can’t stop picking up the field mice (and other woodland creatures) and bopping them on the head.

Alice wants to be a permanent fairy, so she keeps working at it and in doing so she ends up in all kinds of trouble.
