This play started from a Christmas present Hattie and the Fox by Mem Fox. Spatz turned the fox into a friend as he does not like the idea of the fox "eating other amimals(sp)- what do you think they are saying Mama? They don't want to be eaten by him not the little mammals. He should be friend with them."
It them turned into a farm with a farmer harvesting wheat and taking it to his water mill (made by Vati and Spatz last year out of left over hard wood decking boards).
