In January I posted a play based on the folktale Chicken Little (aka Henny Penny.)I also wrote a series of stories about Chicken Little which uses difficult vocabulary words. It is interesting that people who read a great deal throughout their lives understand many words usually considered to be esoteric . These people are considered to be erudite...
The series of four stories is called THE CHICKEN LITTLE CHRONICLES. The first story in the series is a retelling of the Chicken Little folktale. It comes under the title "Chicken Little's Acorn Fiasco."The other three stories are sequels to the story.
Do you want to be part of this group of people who understand many words?
Do you want to score well on the SAT and/or impress people at gatherings??? Hmmm!
The first story in the Chronicles:
CLICK ON THE WORDS IN THE STORY THAT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND FOR THE DEFINITION.
P.S. Folktales are often changed through the years, though the story remains essentially the same. This retelling "softens" the ending. In the original story, Chicken Little and friends are devoured by the foxes. I decided to give these unfortunates a second chance!!!!
