Interrupting Chicken: Cookies for Breakfast

author/illustrator: David Ezra Stein

series name:
Interrupting Chicken

It’s bright and early on a Saturday morning, and the little red chicken wants cookies for breakfast. What better way to persuade Papa than by jarring him awake and gleefully interjecting cookies—and herself!—into every nursery rhyme they read together? The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe heartily endorses the little red chicken’s plan, but Papa has his own idea for a sweet breakfast for his determined daughter. Featuring the same riotous charm and bright, bold art as the Caldecott Honor Book Interrupting Chicken and Interrupting Chicken and the Elephant of Surprise, David Ezra Stein’s third installment will have any fan with a sweet tooth and a love of meta rhyme clamoring to find out if the early bird will get the cookie.

“Stein doesn’t miss a beat. . . .This essential addition is a snug and hilarious version of quality time and the worthiness of a good argument.” —School Library Journal (starred review)
