What did you like about the book:  A wonderful introduction to the classic tale of Curious George and his friend, the man with the yellow hat.   George is a good monkey that enjoys trying new things and playing with his friend, the man in the yellow hat. Sometimes they play on the telephone and George would walk on the telephone wire.  George spots a balloon man and reaches to help himself to one balloon. The whole bunch broke loose and the wind whisked away George and the balloons way up high. When the wind quieted, down they sailed and landed on top of a traffic light.  When George looked down, there was his friend, the man in the yellow hat. They paid the balloon man, climbed into the car, and away they went for a day at the zoo!  

Anything you didn’t like about it? No.
