MUNCHA! MUNCHA! MUNCHA! SUMMARY

Mr. McGreely had dreamed of planting a vegetable garden for many years. He looked forward to getting his hands dirty, and growing yummy vegetables he could eat. Although it took him a long time before actually planting the garden, he finally got started. 

 

One morning when Mr. McGreely went outside to check on his sprouts, he found that some bunnies had nibbled on them! Feeling angry, Mr. McGreely decided to build a small wire fence to keep the bunnies out of his garden. However, that night, the bunnies were able to hop over the fence and get to his vegetables. When Mr. McGreely saw the nibbled leaves the next morning, he decided to build and even taller, wood fence. Unfortunately the bunnies were able to get past the fence and eat the vegetables. Mr. McGreely was furious! He built an enormous stone wall with a door and lock. The bunnies were not able to get past it! 

 

The next morning, Mr. McGreely went into the garden to collect his vegetables. He was surprised to find the bunnies had hopped into the basket he carried and made their way into the garden! The group sat down to munch on the vegetables together.
