Henney Penney & Chicken Little

While writing both the Goldilocks and The Three Pigs stories I wondered about how the world changed from talking animals to the situation we have today. This was, originally, just a story about how the animals lost their ability to talk to humans. That, it seems, evolved into what some may consider a parable. Neither the original Henney Penney nor the original Chicken Little have happy endings. This story, likewise, does not have a happy ending. Still, I thought it to be worthwhile.
