  • Award-Winning
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 Grettel 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? 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.

A favorite joke inspires this charming tale, in which a little chicken’s habit of interrupting bedtime stories is gleefully turned on its head.

    Comments about Interrupting Chicken:

    When I gave the book to the girls (6 1/2 & 3 1/2) they immediately asked if I could read it to them. The little one had me read it at least 4 times in a row. By the end of the day the big one had memorized it. There was a lot of giggling going on that day! They love this book!!
