Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"While beginning readers are convinced that they are enjoying themselves with George, their supervising adults are equally sure that they are learning something. Both are absolutely right." Kirkus Reviews
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Alas, that lively monkey, George, has gotten into mischief once again. In this story, George must be taken to the hospital for an operation. George cries when separated from the Man with the Yellow Hat and screeches at his first glimpse of a needle. Through his eyes (and the colorful illustrations), children receive a sense of the hospital experience and enjoy a happy ending when a healthy George returns home with his friend.
Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
Adored by many generations, Curious George is one inquisitive primate that will be around for ages. In this installment of the "Curious George" series, George is taken to the hospital after his curiosity gets the better of him, and he learns many things about what going to the hospital is all about. From X-rays to anesthesia, the scary prospect of going to the hospital is made a little less frightening when experienced through the eyes of one silly monkey. Just when you think that the excitement is over and George is ready to recover, his antics find him in one sticky situation after another, until the reader is left wondering what else he could possible get into. The story is rather long for young readers, and somewhat old-fashioned in writing style, but the entertainment value has not lessened despite its age. The book is newly released with an audio CD that contains two versions of the narrated story, one with page-turn signals and one without, which provides a new way for readers to enjoy a classic character in action. A useful addition to the early elementary classroom, whether it be on the bookshelf, as part of a listening center, or just to play aloud for the class as a group. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
