George, the popular curious, adventuresome monkey, was up to no good. Then, his friend, the man with the big yellow hat, wanted to take him home from Africa to the zoo. But, when George was captured he still was curious and went on adventures in the big city, one bringing the entire fire department out.
The content of the story line was a bit dated for firefighters and real life today, but the story as a whole is classically cute. Was a great party prize for kids at my son's fire department birthday party.
My son loves this book. He'll bring the book to me or my husband and we have to read it two or three times in one sitting.
