Curious George

by Margaret Rey, H. A. Rey Illustrated by H. A. Rey

George, a small African monkey, is taken from his jungle home to live in a big city Zoo. Along the way, sailors save him from the sea, angry firemen put him in jail, and stolen balloons fly him high above the city — all because he is a curious little monkey!
