George was curious. And, being a monkey, his curiosity led him to be captured by a nice man with a yellow hat who wanted to take him home from Africa to the zoo. Surprisingly enough, even after George was captured, he went on being curious and, as a result, had all sorts of amazing adventures on shipboard and in the big city where the man lived. One of these adventures brought out the whole Fire Department and landed George in prison. How he got out and what happened in the end make an exciting story! Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
