Traveling, playing sports, reading, flying a kite. There are few things that Curious George, the inquisitive, mischievous little monkey is not interested in. This Monday, the Elkridge Branch Library invites kids ages 2 and older to hear about the adventures of Curious George. Since the chimp from Africa first met the man with the yellow hat 61 years ago, he's had plenty of escapades. The library program, called "Meet Curious George," will include readings of a number of classic George tales, such as Curious George Takes a Job, Curious George Rides a Bike, Curious George Gets a Medal, Curious George Flies a Kite, Curious George Learns the Alphabet and Curious George Goes to the Hospital.

They've given the famous Man in the Yellow Hat a name (Ted), but otherwise all is as it should be in the world of Curious George, a winsome big-screen adaptation of H.A. and Margret Rey's tales of a mischievous monkey and his innocent adventures. The animated film, which adds a few modern touches (a cell phone, for instance), but generally remains true to the original stories, introduces us to George in his native Africa. There, the little guy is a crowd favorite, charming, inquisitive, always with a smile on his face.

This is George. He lived in Africa. He was a good little monkey and always very curious. More than 60 years ago, H.A. and Margret Rey introduced Curious George to the world, and today, the mischievous monkey will be floating down Broadway for the first time to lead the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. It's an awesome responsibility for a character known more for his adventures than for his ability to follow directions. But Houghton Mifflin, who recently celebrated George's 60th birthday with a new compilation of the seven original tales written by the Reys, believes George is up to the task.

A feature in which Sun critics and writers sound off about the movies. Is nothing sacred? Those who love the Curious George series of children's books know that The Man in the Yellow Hat has no name. Or rather, he already has a perfectly good name. If the world is a sane and orderly place, mail to this character is addressed to The Man in the Yellow Hat. That is how he answers the phone, and that is the name on his birth certificate. He needs no other. But the filmmakers who remade into a movie the books written in 1941 by H.A. and Margret Rey felt it necessary to give TMITYH a more complete identity.

The Journey That Saved Curious George Louise Borden; illustrated by Allan Drummond Houghton Mifflin / Ages 8-12 H.A. Rey and his wife, Margret, fled Paris on bicycles in June 1940. Using this central fact, Louise Borden tells two fascinating and overlapping stories. Who was the author of Curious George? And what was life like in South America and Europe in the 1930s and wartime 1940s? This is not the landscape of broad national statistics but of human-size events, like finding the bicycles, loading them, cycling 48 kilometers the first day out of Paris and really enjoying the nights when they could sleep in a real bed or have a bath.

Last year it was the NRG Paintball Blaster and the Invincible Knights Weapon Set. This year, Curious George and the Digimon Bank top the list. No, these aren't the hot, must-have gifts of the holiday season. They're the 10 most dangerous toys of 2002, according to the child safety group World Against Toys Causing Harm, or WATCH. Curious George is a repeat offender. Last year, the plush simian showed up in the WATCH lineup in a yellow space suit wielding a fabric-filled mobile phone, a potential choking hazard.
