Bored and with nothing to do, five little irrepressible monkeys willingly clean, scrub, and tidy up the house in anticipation of Grandma Bessie's visit. But as the cheery watercolor and ink art reveals, an enthusiastic trek to gather berries for dessert undoes all their good intentions. These simian siblings will entertain children with their latest escapade. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews

PreS-Gr 2-When five bored little monkeys complain of nothing to do, their mother gladly enlists their help in getting ready for Grandma's visit. In a great scurry, they clean their room, scrub the bathroom, beat the rug, and pick berries for dessert. Unfortunately, when they turn to readying themselves, they undo all their good work and muss and muddy the entire house. Wordless final pictures show them cleaning again. This is Christelow's fourth book about these little monkeys, and it's not quite as much fun as the author's earlier efforts, no doubt because of the "housework is never done" subject matter. The ink-and-wash cartoon illustrations, however, are lively and offer much that will amuse, such as each little monkey pointing in blame at another. This book can be enjoyed one-on-one or at story hour, and all who read it will gain more appreciation for whoever does the cleaning at home.-Meg Stackpole, Rye Free Reading Room, NY
