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.
