6. Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein

Interrupting Chicken is a story about a red chicken, which is so eager to finish a story that he interrupts it every time, much to the annoyance of his father.


Papa chicken is putting the red chicken to bed when the little one asks for a bedtime story. Papa chicken agrees to read a story but tells his son not to interrupt. Little red chicken agrees, and his father starts reading Hansel and Gretel. As Papa approaches the end, little red chicken gets excited and interrupts the story and finishes it too.
The little red chicken interrupts his father again when he reads Little Red Riding Hood and Chicken Little. In the end, Papa chicken runs out of stories and asks his son to read him a story instead. Chicken starts reading a story and in minutes, father is fast asleep and snoring in chicken’s bed!
