George is the irrepressibly curious chimp who has delighted children for more than 50 years with his inadvertent antics. Young readers know better than to trust George on his own, but somehow the man with the yellow hat never seems to learn. Although George's intentions are always good, trouble follows this affable ape like a mischievous little shadow. This time the misadventures take place at the zoo, where George and his friend have gone to see the new rain forest exhibit. Despite the "Do not feed the animals" signs, generous George wants to share his peanuts with the cute koalas; the poor, ravenous alligators; and the friendly giraffes. Pandemonium ensues, but George manages to turn things around--and even save the day!
