Jimmie Little is scared of life. Ever since his father died, the world seems frightening and unpredictable. Jimmie worries so much he's even nicknamed himself Chicken Little.
Then one day Uncle Pete has a terrible accident. Jimmie's nightmares have come true; and, even worse, he blames himself. But when his mother gives a very unusual party for all the relatives, Jimmie begins to realize that his own zany, fun-loving, and sometimes embarrassing family can help him say good-bye to Chicken Little-forever.
