It's Halloween, and the five little monkeys are eager to trick-or-treat. With babysitter Lulu as the group's chaperone, the monkeys venture into the night and encounter several costumed friends. Mischief ensues as the trick-or-treaters swap outfits in a furtive masquerade. Playfully illustrated with a colorful parade of animals and disguises, it's a lighthearted Halloween farce.

It's Halloween, and the five little monkeys are eager to trick-or-treat. With Lulu, the babysitter, as the group's chaperone, the monkeys venture into the night and encounter several costumed friends. Mischief ensues as the trick-or-treaters swap outfits in a furtive masquerade. The little monkeys' mother, however, has the last laugh. Playfully illustrated with a colorful parade of animals and disguises, Christelow's latest Five Little Monkeys volume has none of Halloween's horror and gloom. Instead, the book is a lighthearted farce, and bonus recipes for "Lulu's Eyeball Cookies" and "Worm Juice" should put readers in a festive mood. lily rothman Copyright 2013 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

Christelow's popular Five Little Monkeys enjoy nothing more than getting into mischief, and they accomplish plenty of it on Halloween night as they trick-or-treat with babysitter Lulu. At first, the monkeys are dressed as a banana, alien, ghost, goblin, and princess, but once they're out on the streets, they start switching costumes with fellow trick-or-treaters, leading to five little cases of mistaken identity. Mama knows what's what, though. "There must be some mistake," she tells the five monkeys through narrowed eyes, after they appear on her doorstep in new costumes. "Because I am the mama of a banana, alien, ghost, princess, and goblin. And they are already home." An all's-well ending and some Halloween recipes wrap up this gently naughty romp. Ages 4–8. (Aug.)

PreS-K—Another winner in the further adventures of the familiar five. It's Halloween and the siblings are excited to choose their costumes-alien, banana, ghost, goblin, and princess-and go trick-or-treating with their babysitter, Lulu. While traversing the neighborhood, each monkey sees a youngster with an even-better costume and manages to switch, so all five of them have "tricked" Lulu along the way. The adults figure out what's going on, and the five little monkeys get a taste of their own medicine when it appears they will be left out of the big treat awaiting them at home. After a mild admonishment from Mama for trying to hoodwink Lulu, the five and their friends celebrate the holiday with treats. The digitally rendered pen, ink, and color illustrations showcase a variety of simple, homemade costumes and ideas for a holiday celebration. Eyeball Cookies and Worm Juice, anyone? Recipes at the book's conclusion tell how to make the yummy treats for would-be tricksters.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
