Going shopping…baking cakes…sitting in trees…JUMPING ON BEDS!!! In this zany play, all in cumulative verse, five silly simian siblings insist on doing things their own way and-heedless of admonitions – much more monkey mayhem ensues. Five frisky sibling monkeys get into all kinds of mischief as they try to bake a surprise Birthday cake (for mom), go shopping for clothes, have a picnic, climb a tree and so much more!
