      Curious George Flies A Kite,” written by Margret Rey and illustrated by H.A. Rey is another annoying entry in the Curious George series of books, which I find incredibly overrated.

      This book features Curious George doing a lot of pointless things like playing with rabbits, trying to fish, and attempting to fly a kite. There is no plot whatsoever. The reader just follows George around

      as he does a lot of pointless things, usually with horrible results.

      For some reason, The Man With The Yellow Hat thinks it is a great idea to give George a big ball and then leave the monkey alone for the rest of the day with the stern warning of, “Do not be too curious.” I cannot remember a time where that sort of warning has ...

      • ever stopped George from causing havoc wherever he goes.

        The artwork by Rey is as sloppy and primitve as usual. People’s features are overexaggerated but still manage to be visually boring. The coloring is sloppy. One page features the most ridiculous looking helicopter I have ever seen. In short, the artwork is an absolute mess.

        For some reason, the author thinks that George would

        want to eat fish but would have no interst in eating a bunny. That does not make any sense at all. The entire theme of the book seems to be to let George get into as much trouble as possible, disobey his guardian’s orders, and then neatly tie everything up in the end. I give this book a 2 out of 10. It is horrible.
