Highly entertaining book that has the side benefit of teaching children how annoying interrupting is. It helps if you're willing to use a different "excited voice" to read the Chicken interruptions. This is definitely a "read out loud" kind of book; it wouldn't be nearly as much fun read silently.
To get the most out of the book, the kids already need to be at least a little familiar with the fairy tales that Papa starts to read Chicken (Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood and Chicken Little).
The ending is a little anticlimactic, but we still very much enjoyed the book.
