Little Red Chicken wants Papa to read her a bedtime story, but interrupts him almost as soon as he begins each tale.
As you may have guessed from the title, one of these chickens has a problem with not interjecting in the middle of the story and it's not the dad. The book is comical but also has some negative behaviors I didn't appreciate, including the little chicken promising multiple times not to interrupt and the father rewarding the poor behavior.
