Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“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 Childrens Choice Award, 1990)

Synopsis:

As soon as they say good night to Mama, the five little monkeys start to jump on their bed. But trouble lies ahead as, one by one, they fall off and hurt themselves.

When she decided to write and illustrate picture books for young children, she and her daughter, Heather, "researched the problem together, taking weekly trips to the library and reading at bedtime and nap time."
