Five Little Monkeys with Nothing to Do (Five Little Monkeys Picture Books) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's summer, school is out, and the five little monkeys are bored. "There is nothing to do!" they tell Mama. "Oh yes, there is," says Mama. "Grandma Bessie is coming for lunch, and the house must be neat and clean." Well-meaning as ever, the five little monkeys clean their room and go on to sweep the floors, scrub the bathroom, and pick berries for dessert. But then . . . Children will welcome the return of the five little monkeys, who make the same kinds of messes they do.

Synopsis:

When five bored little monkeys complain of nothing to do, their mother enlists their help in cleaning the house. "This is pure silliness--just the kind kids like . . . The monkeys are suitably active, and their mess-making skills, as demonstrated in the watercolor art, are impressive, with clothes scattered everywhere and dirty water overflowing in the tub . . . Plenty of fun."--ALA "Booklist."

About the Author

Born in Washington, D.C., Eileen Christelow went to school there and in Connecticut, Tokyo, and Massachusetts. 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." Eileen Christelow and her husband, potter Ahren Ahrenholz, now live in Dummerston, Vermont.
