Picture Book Review: Curious George Goes to the Hospital

Curious George Goes to the Hospital by Margret and H.A. Rey, Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1993.
This book is the last book written and illustrated by H.A. Rey and Margret Rey.  It hits on what a problem it can be to put a puzzle piece where it shouldn't be, especially if it is made of wood.  That is just what George does, thinking it might be candy.  He ends up in the hospital.  George, after he is on the mend, brings a smile to the faces of the other children in the hospital.  But George has a knack of getting into trouble.  He puts on a puppet show, rides the stereo turn table, and takes a turn in the wheeled cart.  That is when he really gets into trouble, because he goes down a ramp with food carts and the mayor at the bottom.  Crash!  But it is funny and everyone has a good laugh in the end, and the Man in the Yellow Hat is there to pick up George.  When they get home the finish their puzzle.
