It would be fun to use this book to introduce classic children's tales as used in the book: Red Riding Hood or Hansel and Gretel.

It is definitely cute story. The book makes references to other popular children stories including two of our favorite classics: Hansel and Gretel and the Little Red Riding Hood. So consider reading these to your children, before the interrupting chicken. Both children and parents have also fallen in love with the illustrations in Interrupting Chicken. The illustrations have been made by award winning author and illustrator David Ezra Stein. If you are having trouble with your child interrupting conversations (or if you are looking for a hilarious book that both you and your child will enjoy), I highly recommend this book. It is a must have if you have children aged between 4 and 7 years old. ( )

Lil Chicken just can't go to sleep so she has her father read her a bedtime story. Each page begins a fairytale and ends the next page by having the lil chicken interrupt the story by saving the protagonist. Short, cute and extremely entertaining.

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.
