From Our Editors

"The irrepressible crew from Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed returns in this version of a traditional hand rhyme . . . the familiar chant tells of five foolish monkeys who are eaten when they tease a hungry crocodile . . . the intended audience (will) delight in the mischief-making--a humorous exaggeration of their own antics".--School Library Journal. Full-color illustrations

Editorial Reviews

Brightly colored, cartoon-style artwork, done in mixed media, spreads across wide pages, capturing the exuberant antics of the mischievous critters. A nice bit of fun." School Library Journal "
