David Ezra Stein's Interrupting Chicken is an absolute treasure!
Little Chicken loves to hear her papa read bedtime stories.
Papa loves to read them to her.
The only problem is that Little Chicken gets so involved in the fairy tales he reads that she keeps interrupting and finishing them. She sincerely promises her papa that she won't interrupt, but it's difficult for a little chicken who has such a vivid imagination.
Finally, they try reversing the roles, but a funny thing happens when Little Chicken becomes the story teller and Papa listens.
