Every child will relate to the monkeys feeling bored. Every caregiver will relate to the cleaning up. Christelow perfectly captures the monkeys' moods and facial expressions.

Of Christelow's monkey books, this outshines the rest. This is one of those children's books where the grownup reading it is empathizing with the grownup characters in the story, and a young child is probably identifying with the children, so each group is getting a very different take on the story, and that's just fine. But as our kiddo got older, he got more of the jokes: how the little monkeys are totally baffled by how the once-clean house is now a disaster area, and how the mom and grandma are trying not to laugh.
