This past weekend we visited a bookstore and my son wanted not one, but SEVEN Curious George books to add to his collection (he already had several at home). Curious George and the Puppies was one of those books.

Curious George and his friend were in a park when they noticed a lost kitten who looked frightened. This delightful tale follows Curious George as he accompanies The Man With the Yellow Hat to the Animal Shelter to find the kitten a home.

While there, the director tells them that they're looking for a puppy that got out of his cage. As usual, TMWTYH leaves George unattended (!) and George ends up opening up a cage filled with dogs.

All the animals were making noise and chaos ensues. The director and TMWTYH put all the dogs back in the cage, but the craziness results in a very happy ending for all!

This 24-page book is geared towards ages 4-8, but it seems to have more text than most Curious George books. As such, it's great for beginner/intermediate readers. The illustrations are by Vipah Interactive, done in the style of H.A. Rey.

Curious George and the Puppies is one of the best of the CG stories because, unlike some of the books, no one goes ballistic on George--even to the extent of calling him names or trying to grab him in anger.

My 2 1/2-year-old son really enjoys this book (along with the lap edition of Curious George and the Firefighters). It's a nice story, and George is his usual cute and curious self. I like the large size and board book format - it makes it easy to read at the table or with multiple kids at once, and the pages are easy for toddlers to turn. (Definitely note the size before you buy, though, because a smaller/non-board-book version of this would be better for some situations.)

Cute, curious chaos maker is back again, as usual though, things work out well. In this installment George, along with his mentor in the yellow hat finds a kitten, they take the homeless feline to the shelter and alas George discovers the addictive antics of playful puppies. Obligatory mayhem ensues, all resolves with prerequisite happy ending.

In short, you loved these books when you were a kid, your children will too.

This is my daughter's favorite Curious George story. George and the man with the yellow hat find a lost kitten. Once they bring her to the animal shelter, all kinds of antics involving puppies begin! My little girl loves to point out the different animals at the shelter, and gets very excited when the puppy pages are next. It's a very cute book!

My 5 year old grandson loves this CD/book combo. He plays the CD and when it tells him to turn the page, he does. He is learning to read and this really helps him. He is beginning to recognize some of the words on his own. Am going to purchase more CD/book combos because he really loves them.

My daughter just loves curious George and in fact that was her last birthday theme. We gave out an assortment of these as favors. Everyone loved the idea.

Excellent starter for young readers. My boys love him. This is very nice because I grew up with George too.

Grownups, as well as children of all ages, are still in love with and falling in love with Curious George over and over again. This charismatic, clever, curious little monkey gets himself in a heap of trouble at the animal shelter, but saves the day after being an "animal rescue monkey." H. A. Ray always creates ways to keep my four-year-old (five next month) little boy's attention with his hilarious adventures that Curious George participates in within all his different books. Our Curious George collection of books is growing. Curious George and the Puppies is one of my son's favorite books. He loves when I read to him, he loves Curios George, and he loves puppies. All children should be more than satisfied with this selection. I got my copy in almost brand-new condition for merely pennies. Thanks Amazon!!!

Good book. This is one of the older stories and drawings, not one of the newer stories and drawings.

The story itself is just what I expect to get with a Curious George book, and I have no complaints there. The formatting for an e-book is terrible. The words incorporated as part of the pictures are too small to read directly but oversize the pictures so much that I spent more time adjusting font sizes to get the words and pictures on the same page than actually reading. My niece eventually lost interest and walked away. To make sure it wasn't just my device, I tried this book on two devices (Kindle & Android phone).

Recommendation: stay far away from this format and select one of the numerous other Curious George books available.
