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.
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.
Perfect bedtime reading.
