Who can save the children after the Pied Piper has led them away into a mountain?  The stingy townspeople?  The crippled boy left behind?  No!  It's three unlikely heroes to the rescue—Whiskers (a slow-thinking cat), Squeak (a hard-of-hearing rat) and Chirp (a bird who can't fly).  Join them as they face their fears to rescue the future of Hamelin Town and show us the importance of tolerance for those who are a little bit different from the rest.
