I just tucked The Kidling in. We read, amongst other stories, Henny Penny. I asked what she thought the moral of the story was. I bet you are anticipating something like I expected:
Don’t talk to strangers?
Stay with adults you know?
Instead, she offered this response: “Don’t go with foxy strangers.”
Hmm. I know some folks who would vehemently disagree with that statement, Alice. And yet, I find myself hoping you remember it for a very, very (very) long time.
