In this cozy picture book set on Christmas Eve, the Five Little Monkeys are sure that every little noise they hear is Santa—and of course they have to jump out of bed each time to investigate! Will they ever go to sleep?
“He won’t visit while you’re still awake, so go back to bed, for goodness’ sake!”
It’s Christmas Eve, and the Five Little Monkeys are so excited, they can’t sleep. Not even Mama's and Grandpa's warnings can keep them from jumping out of bed again and again to look for Santa! Will those silly little monkeys find a way to get a glimpse of him and his sleigh before the night is over?
Beloved, best-selling picture book creator Eileen Christelow perfectly captures all the excitement and cozy anticipation of Christmas in this warm holiday story.
