Curious George

"Curious George" by H.A. Rey

Many of you are probably familiar with the character Curious George, and there are dozens of subsequent Curious George tales and a recent movie. But have you read the very first book and remember what happens?

George lived in Africa and saw a man with a yellow hat. George was a very curious monkey which led to the man with a yellow hat to capture him and take him to a city zoo.

Being a curious monkey leads George into many predicaments like falling off of the ship into the water and accidentally calling the fire department when playing with the telephone. He ends up in jail! George escaped jail and was accidentally whisked away with a bunch of balloons that carry him over top of the city where George spots the man with the yellow hat! The man with the yellow hat takes him back to the zoo.

If your child loves the Curious George series, be sure to include the original story!
