Interrupting Chicken

author/illustrator: David Ezra Stein

Itís time for the little red chickenís bedtime story --and a reminder from Papa to try not to interrupt. But the chicken canít help herself! Whether the tale is HANSEL AND GRETEL or LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD or even CHICKEN LITTLE, she jumps into the story to save its hapless characters from doing some dangerous or silly thing. Now itís the little red chickenís turn to tell a story, but will her yawning papa make it to the end without his own kind of interrupting? Energetically illustrated with glowing colors --and offering humorous story-within-a-story views --this all-too-familiar tale is sure to amuse (and hold the attention of ) spirited little chicks.

Awarded a 2011 Caldecott Honor! A favorite joke inspires this charming tale, in which a little chickenís habit of interrupting bedtime stories is gleefully turned on its head. (Ages 4-8)
