Peter Rabbit was starving! He came to a farmer's lettuce garden but it was surrounded by a picket fence. Peter knew he must eat soon or he would die. He could barely fit through the fence in his present condition and he knew that if he entered and ate the lettuce he would be unable to fit back through the fence. If the farmer happened to come by he could not escape. The lettuce was too large too fit through the fence. How could Peter eat the lettuce and still manage to escape if the need arose?
Peter crawled through the fence and brought the lettuce back to the edge of the fence. He squeezed back through the fence to the outside and proceeded to feast.
