Get Well, Curious George

We rated this book:


How comforting to learn that George is still as curious and the man with the yellow hat is still his buddy. Long ago, Margret and H.A. Rey, a young couple who fled the Nazis to make their difficult way to America, created the little monkey who would become Curious George. The series, which has delighted generations of children, has now been taken up by successors Julie M. Fenner and Mary O’Keefe Young (writer and illustrator, respectively).

Today’s boys and girls see Curious George on television, but the books are far more enduring and endearing. This tale about the little monkey suffering from a cold is no exception. It’s a lovely story, in keeping with the others, about a small, anthropomorphized animal (not always such a good idea!) who can’t resist meddling with the remedies.

Without wanting to give away too much, let it be said that when George learns orange juice is in short supply, he squeezes a whole bag of the fruit over the kitchen floor and takes the prescribed rest on the couch after covering every blanket, pillow, and cushion in the house with juice. And instead of scolding, the man in the yellow hat smiles, just like the children lucky enough to read this story will.
