Curious George/ H.A. Rey

You've heard of the old proverb, "Curiosity killed the cat" used to warn of the dangers of unnecessary investigation or experimentation.  Well, CURIOUS GEORGE was not a cat but H. A. Rey has been true to the proverb as this curious little monkey gets into all kinds of scrapes including being captured and taken away from his home in Africa, going overboard at sea and being shut up in a prison.   There is a less frequently-seen rejoinder to "curiosity killed the cat" -  "satisfaction brought it back".  And so it is with George.  He ends up in a very happy place.
