&nbsp"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. (IRA/CBC Children's Choice Award, 1990)
Eileen Christelow has created numerous fun and funny picture books, including the Five Little Monkeys series, Author, and most recently, Letters from a Desperate Dog. She and her husband, Ahren, live in Vermont. For more information visit

From Our Editors

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

Editorial Reviews

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