Jacob - 5 and 3/4 finally (with a little help)
The book is characterized by the excellent writing of the classic Curious George series, with fast-moving action and a lovable, mischievous character all good children love to vicariously enjoy. It's appropriate for preschool through elementary school ages.
In the skyscraper apartment building yesterday a monkey hired to wash windows painted a woman's apartment to look like an African jungle. Hired by the elevator man, he was warned not to get too curious but to stick to his work.
At first the monkey, at the time of this report we do not yet know his name, worked without even looking in the windows. But when he got to an apartment being painted, according to the painters we questioned, he got too curious, stopped working, and watched the painters.
When the painters left for lunch the monkey entered the apartment and used their paint to recreate his native African environment on the walls and furniture coverings of the apartment, complete with palm trees, butterflies, birds, two leopards, one zebra, one giraffe, grass, bushes and a portrait of the "artist" playing in the trees.
Returning from lunch the painters discovered the monkey finishing his creation. The painters, with the apartment owner and the elevator man, chased the monkey down the fire escape.
Forgetting that concrete was much harder than the African jungle ground, the monkey made a foolish leap to the pavement and broke his leg. An ambulance arrived and took the monkey to the hospital where, at press time, he is receiving medical treatment pending identification.
The woman whose apartment he painted said, "He got what he deserved! Making my apartment into a jungle, indeed!" and the elevator man added, "I told him he would get into trouble (if) he was too curious."
If you want to learn not to be too curious, to see how a monkey got hired as a window washer, to find out whether the monkey survives the hospital and to enjoy all of the other funny stuff this little monkey does, then read "Curious George Takes a Job!" A very funny book!
