Literary Critical Response to the text David Ezra Stein Other Books by David Ezra Stein What Interrupting Chicken has to offer readers... Interrupting Chicken is an engaging and entertaining book that allows readers to relate to the little chicken Interrupt-the-Story Game Interrupting Chicken - David was born in Brooklyn, New York
- He had a love for books even as a child
- His parents and grandparents read to him constantly, and as a result his love for imagery and storytelling grew Awards & Reviews Interrupting Chicken David Ezra Stein Sources “I’ll never forget the experience of sitting in a beloved lap and having a whole world open before me: a world brought to life by the pictures and the grown-up’s voice. That wonder is what I want to re-create in my own books,” says David. - After graduating from Parsons School of Design in Manhattan, he decided to pursue children's books
- David worked as a display artist, puppet builder, interior and set-design illustrator, and a cartoonist Funny, With Love. N.p., n.d. Web. 14 Apr. 2013. http://www.davidezra.com/. 2011 Caldecott Honor "The delivery is Catskill perfect; readers will fall hard for the antics of this hapless pair." - Pulbishers Weekly "... This wonderfully illustrated picture book will bring belly laughs from kids." - Booklist Interrupting Chicken either pulls young readers' prior knowledge on beloved pieces of literature (such as Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood) or introduces these works to young readers Interrupting Chicken encourages readers to be actively engaged when reading Interrupting Chicken is a comical and lighthearted tale that inspires empathy when reading (If I was in the story, what would I do?) This game allows students to add their voices to the narrative just like the little red chicken! How the game works: Educator begins a story, and each student adds in one or two sentences each until the story is complete. Reproduce speech bubbles where students are able to record their names. Have the students raise the speech bubble up in the air when they are ready to contribute (or "interrupt") the story "Candlewick Press Story-Hour Kit." Interrupting Chicken. Candlewick Press, 2010. Web. 14 Apr. 2013. http://www.candlewick.com/book_files/0763641685.kit.1.pdf. Chicken, Interrupted: The Art of David Ezra Stein Leonard S. Marcus "Interrupting Chicken is the latest addition to the fractured fairy-tale genre that has yielded so many popular picture books."

Marcus admires the chicken's character because "she wants above all is to get inside the story: be the hero, not the listener, and be in charge."

Analysis of the illustrations:
"Interrupting Chicken [works] in no fewer than three graphic styles that are intended to set apart the frame story, the fairy-tale story-world, and the invented world that the little red chicken herself creates when her father invites her to tell him a story for a change.... Stein pulls it off, rendering the father-and-daughter scenes mostly in color, the fairy-tale scenes mostly in line, and making the child's own drawing mostly about... being childish."

"The opposition Stein sets up between the typical parent's goal-oriented desire to finish reading a book and the child's contrasting preference for daydreaming from page to page is real enough." In all of my education courses, I have learned that it is so important for students to be actively engaged while reading, writing, or working on any other assignments or activities. Therefore, I admire the little chicken's character, just as Leonard Marcus does, because I think it emphasizes the importance of involving your mind in your work.

Interrupting Chicken provides the readers with an opportunity to pull lessons away from the story (the importance of reading to children, father-daughter relationships, as well as the emphasis on allowing children to be engaged when reading) as well as offers an opportunity for the audience to laugh as the chicken constantly jumps into the tales her Papa is reading to her.

Interrupting Chicken offers readers a tale that everyone will be able to relate to (child or adult). This tale emphasizes the importance of imagination and the beauty of childhood.
