It’s time for the little red chicken’s bedtime story — and a reminder from Papa to try not to interrupt. But the chicken can’t 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. When it’s the little red chicken’s turn to tell a story, will her yawning papa make it to the end without his own kind of interrupting? The charming 2011 Caldecott Honor Book is available in an abridged board book edition for the first time.
“The delivery is Catskill perfect; readers will fall hard for the antics of this hapless pair.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
