In the president's office George had to sign a contract. Now he was a movie actor!

In the studio George was kept so busy all the time that he forgot to be curious. He liked the jungle they made for him and played happily there.

And when the picture was finally finished George invited all his friends to see it: the doctor and the nurse and the ambulance driver and the man from the newsstand and the woman and the elevator man and the two painters and the cook and the reporter and all the keepers of the Zoo.

Now the lights went out and the picture started.
"This is George," the voice began.
"He lived in the jungle.
He was a good little monkey—
he had only one fault: he was too curious."

The End

Curious George
rides a bike

This is George.

He lived with his friend, the man with the yellow hat. He was a good little monkey and always very curious.

This morning George was curious the moment he woke up because he knew it was a special day...

At breakfast George's friend said: "Today we are going to celebrate because just three years ago this day I brought you home with me from the jungle. So tonight I'll take you to the animal show. But first I have a surprise for you."

He took George out to the yard where a big box was standing. George was very curious.

Out of the box came a bicycle. George was delighted; that's what he had always wanted. He knew how to ride a bicycle but he had never had one of his own.
