These silly monkeys want to have fun, so they sneak out of the house and go dancing at the local watering hole with their animal friends. But soon it is time to go to bed. However, Mama has other plans for herself. Do the hokey-pokey with the hippo and a jitterbug with the lion, dance the night away with these and other animals. Serious fun for your own little one, and the dancing monkey in us all. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
