Five Little Monkeys Trick-Or-Treat (Five Little Monkeys)by Eileen Christelow
Synopses & Reviews
The five little monkeys are back, this time eager to bake a cake for their mothers birthday. As she sleeps in blissful ignorance, the children demolish the kitchen, and the smoking cake attracts the fire department. She sleeps through the clamor until a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday! wakes her. . . . Christelows cartoon figures are as exuberant as ever, and their gleeful monkeyshines will capture youngsters attention. An additional title that will combine nicely with Christelows other books for a foolproof story time.”—School Library Journal
The five simian siblings, last seen picnicking in Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree, have decided to bake a birthday cake for Mom. Up at dawn, they dash off to the kitchen, hoping to accomplish their task without waking her. With characteristic exuberance, they produce a colossal mess as they concoct the culinary treat and then undertake a noisy wood-working project. . . . Christelows full-color mixed-media illustrations humorously convey the total mayhem created by these well-intentioned children. . . . Few children will be able to resist this delightful sequel.”—ALA Booklist
"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."

Itand#8217;s Halloween, and Lulu the babysitter is taking the five little monkeys trick-or-treating. Those silly monkeys decide that trading costumes with their friends would be fun . . . and chaos ensues. Will Lulu go home with the wrong trick-or-treaters? Will the trick the monkeys play on Lulu keep them from getting their treats?
Mamas out dancing, and Lulu, the babysitter, is in charge. The Five Little Monkeys are supposed to go to bed, but they convince Lulu theres time for just one game of hide-and-seek first . . . and then another, and another . . . until they discover the ultimate hiding place. Lulu is frantic; where can those monkeys be?
Vibrant, expressive illustrations in Eileen Christelows signature style accompany a catchy rhymed text thats great for reading aloud. The refrain invites children to join in; as Lulu counts to 10, 24, and finally 104, young listeners will count along with her. And what little monkey can resist the idea of mischief at bedtime?
