It's open house at George's school, and George gets to try his hand at painting in the art room. What he creates, however, is not a pretty picture! George is still a clever monkey, though, and in the end, he makes the open house a happy occasion for everyone.

Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2--There seems to be no end to this perennially naughty little monkey's adventures. Here are four new stories in which George finds trouble because of his curiosity, and in doing so manages to save the day. Two books show a female dentist and a male art teacher. The quality of the stories and pictures, while on par with the other 20 odd books made from the Curious George film series, are in no way as imaginative or enduring as H. A. Rey's originals. However, children love George and never seem to tire of the repetitious plots or less than distinguished illustrations.
