Bonnie is in trouble. It’s her birthday and everyone in the palace is acting crazy. Her best friend Jester is refusing to let anyone into her party and keeps muttering no-one loves her like him. Prince Charming is scary – declaring it is his destiny to marry her (though they only met 5 minute ago). If that isn’t bad enough Fairy B is refusing to get out of bed until the party’s over.
Will Bonnie ever get to enjoy her party?
Will Jester tell her he loves her?
Will Fairy B ever get out of her night-goon?
