Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed - IRA/CBC Children's Choice - "Whether sublimely happy or ridiculously goofy, Christelow's expressive monkeys pack a lot of appeal." - School Library Journal , starred Five Little Monkeys Wash the Car - "The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations highlight the industrious little monkeys and their expressive faces as the mishap unfolds." - School Library Journal Five Little Monkeys with Nothing to Do - "A lively readaloud." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children - "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 the tub. . . . Plenty of fun." - Booklist Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree - "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
