Children's Book Review: Curious George

Curious George by Margret Ray, illustrated by H.A. Ray, Houghton Mifflin Company, New York, 1941.

In this book we are introduced to Curious George, and the Man in the Yellow Hat.  George's curiosity gets him caught.  He is curious about the hat, and while he tries it on, the man stuffs him in a bag.  He lets him out when the get on the ship, and George trying to be a bird ends of over board.  He finds lots of ways to get into trouble, like calling the fire department by accident, and grabbing a bunch of balloons which carry him into the air.  But the Man in the Yellow Hat is there to rescue him.  The story ends when he arrives at the zoo.

I love this character.  The illustrations are simple, but convey emotion.  This book has the makings of a classic.
