Now its the little red chickens 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 colorsand offering humorous storywithinastory viewsthis alltoofamiliar tale is sure to amuse (and hold the attention of) spirited little chicks.A favorite joke inspires this charming tale, in which a little chickens habit of interrupting bedtime stories is gleefully turned on its head.Awarded a 2011 Caldecott Honor!
