Mama raises an eyebrow. and#8220;What was it I said? Lights out! Sweet dreams! No more reading in bed!and#8221; After their mama reads to them, itand#8217;s bedtime for the Five Little Monkeys. But they canand#8217;t resist reading just one more book . . . or three! Soon Mama is so tired of trying to get her monkeys to quiet down and go to sleep, she picks up their books and takes them with her. At last, the monkeys are ready to settle down . . . until they hear strange sounds from down the hall. Could it be that Mama likes to read in bed, too? This playful addition to the Five Little Monkeys series returns to the familiar setting of Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and features a lively rhymed verse and catchy refrain that are sure to keep young readers chanting along. With a focus on reading for fun and the idea of books as part of a bedtime routine, Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed packs in plenty of mischievous monkey business, and thereand#8217;s even a comical surprise twist at the end.
"Christelow's popular Five Little Monkeys enjoy nothing more than getting into mischief, and they accomplish plenty of it on Halloween night as they trick-or-treat with babysitter Lulu. At first, the monkeys are dressed as a banana, alien, ghost, goblin, and princess, but once they're out on the streets, they start switching costumes with fellow trick-or-treaters, leading to five little cases of mistaken identity. Mama knows what's what, though. 'There must be some mistake,' she tells the five monkeys through narrowed eyes, after they appear on her doorstep in new costumes. 'Because I am the mama of a banana, alien, ghost, princess, and goblin. And they are already home.' An all's-well ending and some Halloween recipes wrap up this gently naughty romp. Ages 4 — 8."
