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!

About the Author

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.

Martha Weston was the author and illustrator of two charming picture books about Tuck, as well as the illustrator of Clarion's successful Owen Foote books by Stephanie Greene. Martha Weston died in 2003.

Not well received, picture too small?

George and the man with the yellow hat take a trip to the library arriving right during story hour. George sees a dinosaur book on the table that the librarian plans to read, but each time she picks up a different story to read. George becomes inpatient and sneaks over to take the book about dinosaurs, and then discovers books on planes, trucks, cranes, boats, kites, and baking cakes. He finds so many books that he can't carry them all until he finds a rolling cart which works great. But this cart gets George into trouble because as you know, he is a very curious monkey.The Curious George stories illustrate modern fantasy for the young elementary students since most people do not own and take their monkey everywhere with them. The idea would be interesting though.
