Curious George won the 2010 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Children’s Animated Program on PBS-TV, and this delightful tie-in tells the madcap story of Curious George at the library. Of course, when the librarian Mrs. Dewey leaves George in charge, he’s in quite the quandary. How will he organize the books? By color? By size? Will he able to shelve them all before Mrs. Dewey comes back? Activities exploring alphabetizing and classification add even more fun to the equation.

Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS. www.curiousgeorge.com.
