In her latest star turn, the little red chicken from the Caldecott Honor Book Interrupting Chicken is hungry—and sillier than ever.

It’s bright and early on a Saturday morning, and the little red chicken wants cookies for breakfast. What better way to persuade Papa than by jarring him awake and gleefully interjecting cookies—and herself!—into every nursery rhyme they read together? Though the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe heartily endorses the little red chicken’s plan, Papa has his own idea for a sweet breakfast for his determined daughter. Featuring the same riotous charm and bright, bold art as Interrupting Chicken and Interrupting Chicken and the Elephant of Surprise, David Ezra Stein’s third installment will have any fan with a sweet tooth and a love of meta rhyme clamoring to find out: will the early bird get the cookie?

Comedic timing, characters’ faces, and Chicken’s persistence are a master class in interruption; Stein doesn’t miss a beat. . . . Logic-defying retorts aside, this essential addition is a snug and hilarious version of quality time and the worthiness of a good argument.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

A sweet and silly read for any time of day.
—Kirkus Reviews

The ‘Interrupting Chicken’ books won’t lull any child to sleep—the pace is too jangly and jumpy for that—but they do tend to delight 4- to 8-year-olds, especially those with a tendency to butt in.
—The Wall Street Journal

This latest installment of the interrupting chicken saga is, like the rest, hilarious, vibrantly illustrated and witty.
—The Virginian-Pilot

Perfect bedtime reading.
