“NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!” The nursery rhyme “Five Little Monkeys” has long been a favorite song and finger play with the preschool set, but Eileen Christelow gives it new life as a hilarious picture book. Her expressive pencil and watercolor illustrations capture both the glee and the pratfalls of those misbehaving monkeys. A sure-fire hit at story hour, this rhythmic romp is a counting lesson, too, as the five bouncy bed-jumpers bump their heads and get hauled off to the doctor one by one. This board-book edition is just the right size for small human hands. (IRA/CBC Children’s Choice Award, 1990)

Praise For…

"In this exuberant picture-book rendition of the popular nursery rhyme, five little monkeys obediently bathe, brush their teeth, don their pajamas, and nestle together under the covers. . . . Squiggling, swirling lines of color capture the sense of unbridled motion as the monkeys bounce and, one by one, topple from the bed. . . . An amusingly presented counting exercise." Booklist, ALA

"Whether sublimely happy or ridiculously goofy, Christelow's expressive monkeys pack a lot of appeal." School Library Journal, Starred
