“The delivery is Catskill perfect; readers will fall hard for the antics of this hapless pair.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
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 Gretel or Little Red Riding Hood
or even Chicken Little
, she jumps into the story to save its hapless characters. 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? The charming 2011 Caldecott Honor Book is available in paperback for the first time.

This is one of the rare titles that will entertain both parent and child.

Stein uses page turns dramatically to build tension, which is released each time the chicken interrupts and amends a fairy tale…illustrations are vivid and dramatic. Great fun for reading aloud.
