"Five Little Monkeys" Special Storyhour with Eileen Christelow

Event date: 
Sunday, October 27, 2013 - 10:30am

 


Trick... or Treat? It's a storyhour treat with author Eileen Christelow reading Five Little Monkeys Trick-or-Treat, the latest in the wildly popular Five Little Monkeys series.

Eileen also provides some pre-Halloween treats of sticker sheets and a chance to win a Five Little Monkeys finger puppet!

In Five Little Monkeys Trick or Treat, the little monkeys dress up for some Halloween trick-or-treating with their favorite babysitter, Lulu. “Ghost, princess, goblin, banana, and alien,” Mama reminds her. “Don’t lose the rascals!” But soon those mischievous monkeys meet other costumed friends and decide to try “the best Halloween trick ever!” Will Lulu be fooled? Or will those five little rascals get tricked by their own monkey business?

Vibrant, silly, and perfect for reading aloud, this non-scary Halloween story is sure to delight fans of this best-selling series. Includes recipes for “eyeballs” and “worm juice” so kids and their grownups can make their own holiday “trick” treats at home.
