Henney Penney & Chicken Little

This is a parable about talking animals and self-reliance. It is a sad tale, but it needs to be told. Neither the original Chicken Little nor the original Henny Penny had happy endings. Not all parables have happy endings. But we can learn from them. Plus, it’s not actually true, it’s just a story, a parable. (About 3860 words– +/- 20 minutes read time.)


This is the first Talking Animal story. It’s fun to visit old favorite stories and revise them. Shakespeare did it. Walt Disney did it. I had a lot of fun doing it. I hope you enjoy my version.
