It’s George’s first trip to the library, and he can’t wait to hear the book the librarian chose for story hour!
But it’s hard for a little monkey to be patient, even when the librarian is reading a story about bunnies. George likes bunnies, but when he spies a dinosaur book on the table near the story circle, he has to have it!
Now he sees a cart he can push along and he adds a book about elephants. And one about boats, and kites, and baking cakes . . . ! Will this book-happy monkey turn the library upside down to find the perfect story?
This edition features library tips, a library maze, a color-your-own bookmark, and downloadable audio!
Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.
