Curious George Saves His Pennies
( by Monica Perez/ illus. by Mary O’Keef Young, Houghton Mifflin $12.99 Score: )

Based on the characters of the original Curious George books by Margaret and H.A. Rey, this little story starts out in a toy store where George is supposed to be shopping for a gift for a friend but falls in love with a wooden train. His big friend, the man in the yellow hat suggests that George can save his pennies for it. Of course, he manages to do so in record time but then looses his piggy bank. All's well that ends well and this is no exception. Like many of the original Curious George books this has some big messages that come through without being preachy-well maybe a little. There's also a pullout cardboard bank for saving pennies in, although pennies may be out-moded since they cost more than a penny apiece to mint. 4-7
