It’s Christmastime! And irrepressible, excitable Curious George has just the spirit for it. He can’t wait to help his best friend, The Man with the Yellow Hat, pick out their holiday tree. At the tree farm, however, amid all the excitement of finding the perfect specimen, George gets carried away, as usual—atop his favorite tree! Hiding in the tree’s branches, George finds himself delivered to the local children’s hospital, where his tree trimming antics cheer the children and he gets to meet a jolly man in a bright red suit.

About the Author

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.

Catherine Hapka  has published more than two hundred books for kids in all age groups from board books to young adult novels. When she’s not writing, Cathy enjoys horseback riding, animals of all kinds, reading, gardening, music, and travel. She lives in an old house on a small farm in Chester County, PA, where she keeps three horses, a small flock of chickens, and too many cats.

Place of Birth:

Hamburg, Germany; Margret in 1906, and H.A. in 1898

Place of Death:

Cambridge, Massachusetts; Margret died in 1996, H.A. in 1977

Children who love Curious George will like this latest adventure, and the story is shorter and more accessible than some of the longer original entries in the series.

My 3-year-old son loves this book. The pictures are colorful and interesting. The story is sweet. I like that it isn't focused on Santa or getting presents.

I buy my daughter a Christmas book every year; to create a collection for her. She loves Curious George, so I jumped on the purchase. Good story; would recommend it to any CG fan.

The book came with a reversible book cover that could be used as wrapping for under the tree. George the monkey tells children by his actions what not to do. He also lets them know that even when actions are naughty the monkey is not a bad monkey, an important lesson to learn.

Especially if your child is familiar with Curious George, this is a great addition to your Christmas book collection. Also, the hospital featured is touching and provides an opportunity for young readers to remember there are children who are stuck in hospitals for the holidays, Santa or no Santa.
