A favorite joke inspires this charming tale, in which a little chickenâs habit of interrupting bedtime stories is gleefully turned on its head.
Itâs time for the little red chickenâs bedtime story âand a reminder from Papa to try not to interrupt. But the chicken canât 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 from doing some dangerous or silly thing. Now itâs the little red chickenâs turn to tell a story, but will her yawning papa make it to the end without his own kind of interrupting? Energetically illustrated with glowing colors âand offering humorous story-within-a-story views âthis all-too-familiar tale is sure to amuse (and hold the attention of ) spirited little chicks.
