Reviews

The delivery is Catskill perfect; readers will fall hard for the antics of this hapless pair.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

It doesn't matter if you are a storytime librarian, classroom teacher or sleepy parent - Interrupting Chicken will have you matching giggles and gaffaws with your audience
--Bookends (Booklist blog)

Stein uses page turns dramatically to build tension, which is released each time the chicken interrupts and amends a fairy tale...illustrations are vivid and dramatic. Great fun for reading aloud.
--Booklist

This is one of the rare titles that will entertain both parent and child.
--School Library Journal

This tender iteration of a familiar nighttime ritual will be equally welcomed by fond parents and those children for whom listening to stories is anything but a passive activity.
--Kirkus Reviews

The colorful illustrations and humorous tone make this book an enjoyable independent read or as a read aloud.
--Library Media Connection

Vibrant art is offbeat and original like the story line that still manages a familiar ring for patient parents and participatory kids alike
--San Francisco Chronicle

This entire book is just as much fun as the title.
--Chicago Tribune

A papa chicken can't get a word in edgewise in the lighthearted Caldecott Honor winner that proves patience is a virtue.
