PreS-Gr 1-The Caldecott Award-winning artist creates another showstopper with this sweetly told bedtime story. A mischievous monkey silently follows a sleepy zookeeper on his midnight rounds, unlocking the cages of all of the animal inhabitants. The stealthy parade follows the drowsy caretaker home, where they tuck themselves into available nooks and crannies of his bedroom. This deceptively simple story is charming. Its many visual embellishments, done in deep, dreamy shades of pinks, greens, and violets, amplify the 10-word text. Young children will enjoy searching the pages for hidden details. For example, a tiny mouse dragging a banana around is a separate, silent pantomime. Each beast has a tiny stuffed animal to keep it company. This is certain to become a bedtime favorite. Luckily it's so adorable and so brief that parents won't mind requests for repeated readings. It's high time this 1995 ALA Notable Book is available in Spanish. Bookstores and libraries will want to have plenty of copies on hand. Cheryl Scheer, Denver P.L. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
