Chicken Little is a folk tale with a moral in the form of a cumulative tale about a chicken who believes the world is coming to an end. The phrase "The sky is falling!" features prominently in the story, and has passed into the English language as a common idiom indicating a hysterical or mistaken belief that disaster is imminent.I don't remember this ending when I was little but as a mother myself now, I chose to get a refund on this book and NOT read it to my child. The "ripping off of heads" and "tossing the head in one direction and the body in another" seems inappropriate to me for a childs book. I think there should be some disclaimer before someone wastes their money or worse, lets their child read it.
