Five little monkeys and their mama walk down to the river for a picnic supper. While Mama takes a snooze, the five little monkeys climb a tree. Why? To tease Mr. Crocodile! "Can't catch me!" they shout, and Mr. Crocodile opens his big mouth: SNAP! Oh, no, now there are only four little monkeys! A second little monkey teases Mr. Crocodile, he snaps his jaws, and that little monkey also disappears--or seems to. Eileen Christelow's mischievous monkeys first charmed young readers and listeners in Five Little Monkeys Jumpinng on the Bed. They will win even more followers with this rhythmic new counting book about disappearances--and surprise reappearances. Hardcover edition.
