And so it is that he tries to fly while on the ship taking them to the city. But when he tries to make a phone call, things get really out of control. Will George's curiosity get him into trouble he can't handle?
This is another one I remember liking from my childhood. I'm not sure it holds up as well today as it did back then. Part of it is the potential issue of George's abduction. It didn't bother me as a kid, but it doesn't sit as well with me as an adult. Then again, George being curious in the jungle wouldn't be interested for those of us who live in the city, and it's just a set up to the main fun of George in the city.
And really, the story is fun. The moral of the danger of curiosity comes through loud and clear. It's a wild, improbable tale, but I certainly remember loving it as a kid. And the pictures, while dated, are simple and charming. There are some other dated elements (like smoking a pipe being treated as normal), but most of the kids today will still enjoy the book.
So George is still a charming friend for any child, although he's not quite as classic as some other choices.
