Summary
It's homework time for the little red chicken, who has just learned 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?
Summary
When Little Red Chicken comes home excited about what she learned in school, she explains to Papa that every story has "an elephant of surprise."
