Summary: “The boy was named Pence because he was made from a potato grown close to the fence, or so he gathered.” With all the wrong proportions of courage and common sense, a head that is a mite on the fat side and a mouth too big for any respectable vegetable, Pence will have you laughing out loud to the bitter end.
This is a dark story. A lot of people get their hands cut off. There are deadly curses, kidnapping, decapitation, and a pair of lovers’ lifelong dreams dashed to pieces. Most of that goes right over Pence’s head.
He has bigger things to worry about.
