This was another cute book. Chicken needs to go to bed, but she keeps interrupting her father's bedtime stories instead of being lulled to sleep by them. The words were entertaining, for they took well-known stories and broke them up with Chicken's silly, briefly summarized endings. The drawings of Chicken in each of the stories she was being read were so different--one of them definitely did not belong. Their contrast aided the point of the book, for I could definitely see a five-year-old laughing at Chicken saying that she came into the story of Hansel and Gretel and ate the witch's candy house.

A very funny tale about a little chicken who is being put to bed by her father. As he begins tale after tale, she onvariably interrupts him and changes the ending last minute. Nicely illustrated with bright bold colors and the funny story keeps children interested. I liked the funny ending of the story.

This book has bright, old, colorful images, and highlights the relationship between parents and children during story time. It also broaches the issue of interrupting - I'm guessing it's a common occurrence with many children!

Fun book with warm and colorful illustrations. Papa chicken is putting little red chicken to bed and reading her bedtime stories, only she keeps interrupting and changes the ending of the stories. She begs for another story after another and finally, exhausted Papa has her make her own story and read it to him which puts him to sleep. The end! Very fun and is great for younger readers.

Little Chicken needs a bedtime story before he can go to sleep. His papa agrees to read to him, if Little Chicken can keep from interrupting. As anyone who has read a good tale with an exuberant child can imagine, it is easier said than done. The illustrations are delightful and add to the ambiance of the story.

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.
