“Based upon the 2011 Caldecott Honor-winning book series written and illustrated by David Ezra Stein, “Interrupting Chicken” is an animated preschool series that introduces children to the joy of creative writing — starting with a young little chicken named Piper who has a habit of interrupting storytime! Every time Piper hears a story, she can’t help but jump in, ask questions and let her imagination run wild as she tries to fill in details, guess what happens next or insert herself in the middle of the action to help save the day.”
The series is based on the book Interrupting Chicken by the award-winning author and illustrator, David Ezra Stein.
Piper’s father narrates stories for his children but Piper interrupts his tales and adds her own twists. Through the stories, Piper creates a world of her own and changes the plot of classics like Three Little Pigs, Humpty Dumpty and many more.
