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 Grettel 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 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?
Energetically illustrated with glowing colors, and offering humorous story-within-a-story views, this all-too-familiar tale is sure to amuse (and hold the attention of) spirited little chicks.
"Stein's droll cartoons use watercolor, crayon, china marker, pen, and tea. The rich colors of the characters perfectly contrast with the sepia pages of the storybooks. This is one of the rare titles that will entertain both parent and child." -- Gay Lynn Van Vleck, School Library Journal
