The little red chicken in this amusing Junior Library Guide selection always manages to interrupt her father whenever he is reading her a bedtime story.

Whether it is Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood or Chicken Little, the result is always the same. Before her father can finish the story the little red chicken has to jump in to save the hapless characters from disaster.

Don't go in! She's a witch! cries the little chicken, warning Hansel and Gretel to steer clear of the candy house.

Don't talk to strangers! admonishes the little chicken when she sees Little Red Riding Hood head into the forest.

Tired of his daughter's inability to keep quiet when he reads her a story, Father Chicken turns the tables on his little one when he has Little Chicken read him a story.

Your brood will love this story with its humorous ending and vibrant art work. And if they are prone to interrupt when you are talking, perhaps your little chicks will learn something too!
