SURPRISE! The little red chicken is back in David Ezra Stein's follow-up to the Caldecott Honor book Interrupting Chicken. It's homework time for the little red chicken, who has just learnt what every good story should have: an elephant of surprise. Or is it, as her papa suggests, an element of surprise?
As they dive into some stories - looking for the parts that make you go "Whoa!
I didn't know that was going to happen!" - Papa is sure he can convince Chicken he's right.
After all, there are no elephants in The Ugly Duckling, Rapunzel or The Little Mermaid... Or are there?
