Staff Reviews


The Caldecott Honor Book Interrupting Chicken perfectly captures the lively imagination of a toddler while hearing stories at bedtime. Interrupting his father’s best efforts to read books, Little Red Chicken dramatically inserts himself into the stories until he himself is interrupted in a most unusual way. The back and forth between father and son will be a familiar and endearing scene for any father with young children.

— Casey

Autumn 2010 Kids' Next List


“Little Red Chicken simply can't restrain herself when, in the bedtime stories that Papa reads to her, the characters are about to do something she knows they shouldn't do. So she interrupts, and Papa can't ever finish a story, and Little Red Chicken still isn't asleep. It's enough to wear a papa out, so Little Red Chicken offers to read him a story instead. David Ezra Stein's art is electric and energetic, and the story has just the right amount of silliness for kids and parents alike.”
— Ellen Richmond, Children's Book Cellar, Waterville, ME
