When it is time for Papa to read a bedtime story, the little chicken can't help but want to change how the story ends. It seems that Papa can't get through an entire story before the little chicken interrupts the story to put in a new ending.

Story of a tired rooster and his daughter hen. Rooster attempts to read stories in order to put his daughter to sleep but his daughter keeps interrupting the stories and becoming less sleepy each time. Eventually they run out of stories and his daughter reads him an original story and eventually both fall asleep in the same bed.

This is a read aloud picture book that is just plain fun to read. I read it to my daughter and granddaughters and they laughed throughout it. It is a funny book and a sweet book. ( )

This is a fun story about a little chicken that wants to take part in the story telling. With each new story the little chicken wants to change the end while Papa becomes more and more tired. With very lively illustrations this story will keep you laughing while still enjoying the very sweet tone.
