About The Book

In this jazzy countdown, a band of chimps sneaks out of bed and boogies on down to the local watering hole. One by one, each primate finds a partner and dances the night away—at least until Mama Chimp catches on and they have to cha-cha all the way back home! With its catchy refrain and dazzling assortment of animals, from jitterbugging lions to hippos who hokey-pokey, this book will have readers cha-chacha-ing every evening!
