The five little monkeys have nothing to do, so Mama suggests they clean the house to prepare for Aunt Bessie's visit. They sweep the floors, scrub the bathroom, and troop off to the muddy berry batch to pick berries for dessert, with deliciously messy results. Children will welcome the return of Eileen Christelow's irrepressible Five Little Monkeys, who make the same kinds of mistakes kids do but never lose their mama's love. The author's book What Do Authors Do? is a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. Full color.
