Giveaway: Curious George!

posted by Nell Minow

The adorable monkey whose inquiring personality frequently requires rescue by the man in the yellow hat has a new DVD for the holidays, in stores already: Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas It is a charming story to relieve some of the pressure of the season with a reminder that laughing together when things go wrong is one of the pleasures we share with those we love.


And thanks to Universal Studios Home Entertainment, I have one to give away. Write to me at and let me know about a time you were curious — the first one will win the DVD.
