Five Little Monkeys Wash the Car by Eileen Christelow


Five Little Monkeys Wash the Car by Eileen Christelow

The five little monkeys and Mama are eager to get a new car. The five little monkeys clean and paint their old car until it sparkles like new. But who will buy it? Perhaps those clever monkeys can convince their cranky crocodile neighbours that what they really need is...yes, a car! Lively verse and Eileen Christelow's inimitably comic illustrations put the five little monkeys in the driver's seat in more ways than one. This sturdy board book edition is perfect for repeat readings.


Christelow's watercolor and pencil illustrations show great energy and movement, peppered with just the right amount of silliness. Booklist, ALA
