This book is a pretty good book that is full of adventure. It is basically about curious George getting himself into a whole lot of trouble (as always). It all starts when George spills a bottle of ink. He doesn't know what to do and doesn't want to make "the man in the yellow hat" angry, so he tries to clean it up with a whole box of soap. He dumps the soap on and brings the hose through the window, which ends up flooding the room. That is how George's adventure begins. George decides he needs a pump and he knows that the farmers down the street have one. So he goes there and gets it, but in the process he lets the pigs out and makes whole bunch of commotion, so he hides. Then he jumps on a truck and goes to a museum where he knocks down a dinosaur. He gets caught at the museum because he didn't have time to hide. They put him in a cage and start to carry him off, but then 'the man in the yellow hat" comes and saves him by reading him a letter he had received earlier that day. The letter asks George if he will do an experiment and be the first monkey in space! But will he go? You'll have to find out by reading this book by H.A. Rey.
This book is good but it is definitely not one of my favorites. George does a lot of naughty things and never gets punished for them. Otherwise this story was pretty good. It is wild and wacky and great for children, as long as they're not learning bad things from it (like you won't get in trouble for stealing). If your not looking for a book that will teach lessons or you want a book that is just plain funny, this is the one for you. I would recommend children from ages 3-9 read this book. They will most likely enjoy it.
