One of the Best Curious George Books!
on June 6, 2007
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.
