The wall builder has found the perfect place. What could go wrong? The perfect place is a clearing in the forest where vegetation grows abundant, the air is fresh and clean, and a river flows. The wall builder decides to stay, but little by little the inhabitants of that place appear: a dog, a wild boar, a cat, a bird... Their arrival enrages the wall builder, who is not willing to share his perfect place with anyone and who will react in the only way he knows. Decur’s illustrations bring to life a fascinating world populated by cute animals, while turning the wall builder himself into an endearing character who can still be redeemed. A fable that talks of nature, people and our relationship with the world we inhabit and of which we are a part.
