The five little monkeys are back, this time eager to bake a cake for their mother’s birthday. As she sleeps in blissful ignorance, the children demolish the kitchen, and the smoking cake attracts the fire department. She sleeps through the clamor until a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday!’ wakes her. . . . Christelow’s cartoon figures are as exuberant as ever, and their gleeful monkeyshines will capture youngsters’ attention. An additional title that will combine nicely with Christelow’s other books for a foolproof story time.” School Library Journal

The five simian siblings, last seen picnicking in Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree, have decided to bake a birthday cake for Mom. Up at dawn, they dash off to the kitchen, hoping to accomplish their task without waking her. With characteristic exuberance, they produce a colossal mess as they concoct the culinary treat and then undertake a noisy wood-working project. . . . Christelow’s full-color mixed-media illustrations humorously convey the total mayhem created by these well-intentioned children. . . . Few children will be able to resist this delightful sequel.” ALA Booklist

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- The five little monkeys are back, this time eager to bake a cake for their mother's birthday. As she sleeps in blissful ignorance, the children demolish the kitchen, and the smoking cake attracts the fire department. She sleeps through the clamor until a rousing chorus of "Happy Birthday!" wakes her. When she informs everyone that her birthday is the next day, silent plans are made for another cake. While this story lacks the infectious humor and counting motif of its predecessors, children will enjoy the repetition of "Sh-h-h! Don't wake up Mama." Christelow's cartoon figures are as exuberant as ever, and their gleeful monkeyshines will capture youngsters' attention. An additional title that will combine nicely with Christelow's other books for a foolproof story time. --Lori A. Janick, Parkwood Elementary School, Pasadena, TX
