Interrupting Chicken is an adorable story about a little chicken trying to wait patiently for her papa to read her a bedtime story before going to sleep. However, she 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 from doing some dangerous or silly thing. Now it’s the little red chicken’s turn to tell a story, but will her yawning papa make it to the end without his own kind of interrupting?

Furthermore, Interrupting Chicken, by David Ezra Stein, is the winner of the 2011 Caldecott Honor Award.
