PreSchool-Grade 1?Although there's been a change in cast in this familiar rhyme, jumping on the bed continues to be a hazardous activity. Arnold's colorful cartoon monsters bounce on the bed until "one falls off and bumps its head." The doctor's advice is, of course, to stop bouncing. With each casualty the type and color of monster changes. This somewhat diffuses the cumulative effect and the heady thrill of disobeying the doctor. It does give the illustrator the opportunity to create five different sorts of affable creatures. Colorful illustrations, a silly verse, and a bold boy who finally takes charge come together here for a happy though brief story time read-aloud.?Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City

Ages 2^-5. Twisting the words of the old "Five Little Monkeys" song, this picture book concerns a little boy who's trying to get to sleep. Soon five rather cuddly looking, bug-eyed monsters troop in and boot him out of his bed, which they use as a trampoline. When one falls off and bumps his head, the boy calls the doctor, who yells through the phone: "No more monsters jumping on the bed!" Cowed, the little monsters trundle off, but just as the boy is getting to sleep, four new monsters barge in looking for fun, then three, then two, and finally, one. Taking charge, the boy dispatches them all. Lively cartoon drawings, colorful washes, and many comic touches make this bright, sassy picture book a natural for story time. Great fun, though probably better as a wake-up book than a bedtime story. Carolyn Phelan
