He knows he's not supposed to beg, but his people are always eating. And Stanley is always hungry After he's told to "get," Stanley wanders down by the river where he runs into Alice, Nutsy and Gassy Jack. Soon their keen noses lead them to a delicious treat on a small boat with no people in sight. When the boat's mooring comes loose, they float away with the current down the river, under a bridge and then out to sea It's a scary new world where the sky stretches in every direction and big waves crash.

When suddenly through the mist they see what looks like a very tall fence, they know they've come to the End of Outside But what kind of fence is this?
