Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree

by Eileen Christelow

"The irrepressible crew from "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" returns in this version of a traditional hand rhyme...the familiar chant tells of five foolish monkeys who are eaten when they tease a hungry crocodile... [T]he intended audience (will) delight in the mischief-making — a humorous exaggeration of their own antics." — School Library Journal
