Example of text:-
'This is a story about Chicken Licken, Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Goosey Loosey, Turkey Lurkey and Foxy Loxy.
This is where they live.
Once upon a time, there was a farm.
Most of the animals on the farm were happy.
But Chicken Licken wasn't happy.
Chicken Licken was scared of everything.
One day, Chicken Licken went to the woods.
He stopped by an old oak tree.
Suddenly, a tiny acorn dropped from the tree
and hit Chicken Licken's head......'
But as Chicken Licken fails to see the tiny acorn, he thinks the sky is falling ....and rushes to tell the King, involving all and sundry on the way except Foxy Loxy who slyly diverts all on a rather selfish detour....then an acorn hits him on the head .........
'Chicken Licken is a very old folk tale. No one knows who first wrote it, but it may come from a similar story in the Jataka - a collection of Buddhist tales.....'
