About the Novel: A well-loved story about a curious little monkey named George, who is caught in his home land of Africa by a man in a yellow hat. Inspired by his curiosity for the world around him, George has one adventure after another from the time he leaves Africa to the time he finally arrives at the Zoo. George tries to fly like the sea gulls, but this only gets him wet. He dials 1-2-3-4-5-6-7, which is the number for the Fire Department. He takes a man's balloons and starts flying through the air over the city's traffic. At the end of the story, George finally ends up in a tree at the Zoo. It was a nice place to live!
