Review "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. . . . Bright patches of clothing and pairs of little eyes among the leaves will signal perceptive listeners that all is well. . . . In the upbeat ending, all the children pop out of their hiding places, safe and sound." (School Library Journal )

"Brightly coloured, cartoon-style artwork, done in mixed media, spreads across wide pages, capturing the exuberant antics of the mischievous critters, whose colourful garb makes them easy to spot as they hide in the foliage of the big old tree. A nice bit of fun." (A.L.A. Booklist )

"The mischievous monkeys get picked off, one by one, by the crocodile they are teasing—or so it seems. Their colourful shorts peek out of the leaves throughout, and at end the monkeys reassuringly appear." (Publishers Weekly ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
