Basic Plot: George is a very curious little monkey who meets a man dressed like a banana...
This was an interesting book. It's based on the movie, so the art is all from that. Very clean, very slick art. The interesting part, though, is the design of the text of the book. At the beginning, there is a key relating picture icons to various words. Throughout the book, rather than write those words, the icons were inserted into the text. This led to a very interactive experience with my beginning reader son. He was VERY excited and happy to participate whenever I pointed to one of those icons. It's a good concept for beginning readers, getting them to interact with the text as well as the pictures in a book.
Generally, I don't like these books based on the cartoon or the movie as they cut too much out, but this book focused mainly on George meeting the Man in the Yellow Hat and didn't even attempt to cover the whole movie. I felt this worked well, as it didn't overreach its purpose.
Can I just take a second to rant about the script writer giving the Man a name in the movie? He's been just the Man in the Yellow Hat for DECADES. So, I will NOT call him by the name they gave him in the movie. He has no name, dammit. He is just the Man in the Yellow Hat. *glares at Hollywood*
Otherwise, a great reader for the little ones. I'm sure I'll be reading this one many times before it's due back to the library.
