Curious George is on a chocolate factory tour when he sees his favorite chocolate go zipping by on the conveyor belt. As the stories usually go, he causes a problem, makes a mess, and then helps clean up and make things right. I thought for sure George would fall into a vat of chocolate, but no, his antics are slightly tamer this time. He does manage to speed up the conveyor belt and the chocolates pile up at the end of the belt. He helps to fill the boxes all while keeping a sharp eye out for ...more

So i was very confused and conflicted whenever it comes to rateing Curious George Goes to a Choclate Factory... Whenever i picked this book up from the library i was very excited because i still love the telivision program that aires on PBS. This book dissapointed me and it was not the story itself it was the pictures whenever i saw these pictures i thought of watercolors and i personally have no tolerance for the look of water colors. If i am going to paint then i have to use the good expensive ...more

SUMMARY: Curious George just can’t stay out of trouble, and this time it happens at a chocolate factory. As the Man in the Yellow Hat is purchasing his favorite chocolates, George is curious about what is happening on the other side of the observation window. Finding a door, Curious George ends up on the production floor of the chocolate factory. He observes the candies coming out of a machine on a conveyor belt and wants to see inside. Climbing up on the machine he steps on a lever that speeds ...more
"He saved our chocolates!"

No he didn't. He contaminated your factory chocolates with his monkey fur. Don't you dare think about selling those! He also screwed up your machine, making it go haywire in the first place!

This just in: Area mother does not have much of a sense of humor when it comes to ruined chocolate.

This book revolves around the famous monkey Curious George and the man int he yellow hat going to visit a chocolate factory. Curious George does what he does and gets curious; he ventures off into the chocolate factory and messes with the machines. The machine is making way too much chocolate for the workers, but George fixes the problem. He eats and cleans up the chocolates fast until someone was able to fix it.

Everybody loves Curious George because he is lovable. His adventures always get him

My sympathies are with the manager of the chocolate factory. There is no way she can, in good conscience, sell chocolates handled by a monkey.

That factory is probably out of business in six months, which could spawn a readable sequel, "Curious George Is Depressed by Downtown Blight."

My three year old granddaughter loves monkeys and chocolate so this was a perfect book!

Good ol' Curious George - The Man in the Yellow Hat leaves him alone (you'd think he'd learn by now!), George gets curious, gets too close to the action, wreaks havoc, and saves the day (kind of). While not one of the original stories, this continuation of the brand is very well done. In this installment, (obviously) George visits a chocolate factory - and since my husband once worked in food manufacturing we did have a few complaints haha (such as one machine making all the different kinds of ...more

A fun adventure where George learns that too many sweets can be too much. I like the new adventures as they show how we learn from our experiences and that curiosity is not the same as naughtiness.

Classic George. Curiosity gets him in trouble, but he helps out. Fun to read and kids love it.

This book is entertaining and a fun read however it does not impart an important message. George is a little monkey that loves chocolates and gets in trouble by making the chocolate machine go too fast. The little monkey then helps the works by catching them up to the speed of the machine. The only message that is hinted at is the importance of being a hard worker and keeping your curiosity alive and well!

I picked this book out at my school's library. I like these books because I watched the television show with my grandpa. In this book, George visits a chocolate factory and he accidentally causes chaos when he bumps the speed up on the conveyor belt (cue classicI Love Lucy scene). George comes to the rescue by using his arms and legs to quickly put chocolates into boxes - and eats a whole bunch of chocolates, too!

This book is great for beginning readers! Curious George always seems to find himself in trouble because he is just so curious. In this book, he goes to a chocolate factory and starts making a mess but ends up fixing it so it all ends up okay!

THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER! It’s so good. My all time favorite childhood book. It’s awesome cause it’s about chocolate. Highly recommend 12/10 and I really wanna see a movie adaption of this masterpiece of a book.

Probably my favorite Curious George picture book. It's here I learned how to tell what different chocolates were filled with because of different decorations.

what kind of curiosity lurks in a chocolate factory for George?
It was a lovely gift. Sebastian enjoys it, but I’m not a fan of candy in stories. At least it’s not an everyday life thing, but a special thing for George.

I love Curious George. This story reminded me of the episode of I Love Lucy. Curious George somehow seems to get into trouble without meaning too. Lots of laughs

Kids really like this story, as usual he gets into a lot of trouble. I cant help but thinking (as an adult) how unsanitary it would be to have a monkey box chocolates with his bare hands :)

I think that the Curious George books are always good. Within this book it was about, how Curious George and the man with the yellow hat had went to the chocolate factory. Although the man with the yellow hat had told George to stay put when he had paid for the chocolates that he liked but George was a Curious little monkey. The thing about Curious George is how he has a hard time listening, in this book you will see what he does that he

This is NOT one of the seven original tales of Curious George, which were: Curious George, Curious George Gets a Medal, Curious George Flies a Kite, Curious George Rides a Bike, Curious George Goes to the Hospital, Curious George Takes a Job, and Curious George Learns the Alphabet.

It is however about "chocolates" - which everyone loves - and the Curious George brand is effectively translated. The illustrations, the type, and the characters match the originals. So in the 1998 story we still see

Curious George recreates an I Love Lucy episode, speeding up a chocolate candy conveyor belt, stuffing his face to keep up, and saving the day - by packing candy into boxes with his toes. Personally I'd rather not consume chocolate touched by monkey feet, but maybe people in George's world are into it. That's only one of the mysteries in this story! Others include how the machine makes squiggles (George never finds out) and how the conveyor belt gets back to its normal setting at the end. Plus, ...more
