Sweet, funny story! Love the looks of surprise on the faces of the storybook characters as little chicken enters the story and changes the endings for his own please! ( )

A very fun story, that children will definitely find funny. The presentation of the story was really fantastic. David Ezra Stein's combination of text, word bubbles, and text in the storybooks blend nicely together. Would be a fun story to read aloud and could also be used to talk about good listening skills with a class.

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 because more and more tired. With very lively illustrations this story will keep you laughing while enjoying the very sweat tone.

I loved this book! The different styles of art between when little red chicken interrupts her Papa's reading. It really creates a definite line so you can see where the story changes from the actual book to chicken's version. Little chicken is very endearing and makes me miss reading with my little brothers.

Interrupting Chicken is a book about a baby chicken going to sleep. Papa bear always reads her a bedtime story before she goes to sleep, but baby chicken always interrupts the story with a humorous quick ending. She promises she won't interrupt this time. When papa bear starts reading Hansel and Gretel, baby chicken interrupts, she promises she won't do it again. He reads Little Red Ridinghood and she does it again, promises she won't, etc. Finally papa bear gets mad and tells her to read him a bedtime story, baby chicken reads him a bedtime story and right as she begins, he's fast asleep. Super funny book. Kids love it.

Book description
Father and son are chickens in this book and it is bedtime for son, though, when it comes time for bedtimem stories the son is overwhelmed with excitement and inserts himself into each plot line of the few classics dad chicken tries to get through before he is able to get to the end of the story; be it Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel or Chicke Little. The illustrations in this book are likely what will be what stand-out to the story.
