The Fence is the story of Mr. Felix, a grumpy old rabbit, and Marcus, the cheerful young mole who lives in the next tree. Their outlooks on life could not be more different. Their dispositions could not be less similar. When Mr. Felix can no longer tolerate Marcus's exuberance, Mr. Felix takes drastic action. But what will happen when a storm rips through the forest? Don't worry--this story ends on a happy and hopeful note. ENJOY!
