about this item

One of the most popular characters in children's literature, Curious George is a young monkey whose enthusiasm for life often mirrors that of a typical preschooler. George's tale begins in Africa, where his curiosity leads to his first encounter with the friendly, but always unnamed, man in the big yellow hat. Captured and adopted by the man, George and he then sail to the United State where the man plans to find him a comfortable home at the city zoo. However, before he can relocate to his new home, George's boundless curiosity gets him into a lot of trouble. Will George's naughty behavior separate him from the man in the big yellow hat forever? This is the first in a series of picture books to feature the mischievous monkey, who also appears in such other works as CURIOUS GEORGE GOES TO THE HOSPITAL, CURIOUS GEORGE LEARNS THE ALPHABET, and CURIOUS GEORGE TAKES A JOB.
The curiosity of a newly-captured monkey gets him into considerable trouble.
