Ben is a mouse, born about two thousand six hundred years ago and unwillingly blessed by a witch doctor after saving the village’s protector. Now he cannot die. In present-day Texas, Ben’s children - Cat, Charlie, Carter and Shoey - have just turned two and strange things are starting to happen. When Carter finds himself on top of the barn without knowing why and how he got there, Ben knows it is time to tell his children the truth. They are special and will, over the course of the coming days, receive their powers. He warns them to keep it a secret, but will they listen? They aren’t exactly angels and have a knack for getting up to mischief, causing them to attract unwanted attention, with someone following their every move. Will this follower turn out to be friend or foe? When a fire threatens to burn down the barn, Ben gets to see what his children are really made of. Can he be a proud father or is it one more thing on his list to be worried about? Normal animals don’t take kindly to abnormal creatures and after their mother had left them a year earlier, they moved to Texas. Henrietta, the only goose on the farm, became the mother they so desperately craved. When her first and only chance comes along to finally have a family of her own, someone makes the mistake of stealing her eggs. What was supposed to be the best period of Cat, Charlie, Carter and Shoey’s lives turns out to be one of the worst. It is now a race against time to follow the clues and get the eggs back to Henrietta before the embryos inside die. The only way to bring the thieves to justice would be to stick together, but when every bad element hits them all at once, it starts to drive a wedge between them. Will they succeed against all odds, or will the whole farm be dumped in a pool of sorrow?
