As soon as they say good-night to Mama, the five little monkeys start to jump on their bed. Trouble lies ahead as, one by one, they fall off and hurt themselves. After the doctor issues a stern order--No more monkeys jumping on hte bed!--they finally fall asleep. Full-color illustrations.
"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
