George and Steve eat all of their friend's honeycomb, so they turn a kitchen cabinet into a beehive hoping to attract bees. The inclusion of bee facts is forced in both the Spanish and English texts. Based on a television episode and accompanied by unsubtle illustrations, the disjointed plot ends on a mildly amusing note. Two related activities are appended. [Review covers these Green Light Readers titles: Curious George: A Home for Honey Bees and Jorge el curioso: Un hogar para las abejas / Curious George: A Home for Honeybees.]

Gr 1–3—Curious George discovers that bees are excellent builders when his friend Betsy shares her honeycomb with him and Steve. But when George and Steve eat it all up, they go in search of more and meet a beekeeper who shows them how to build a hive. George helps to create more honeycomb in his signature mischievous style. Betsy is thrilled with the results. This is a standard easy reader with clear text and illustrations depicting the characters antics. Additionally there are two simple but fun activities at the end of the story. A solid addition to an easy-reader section.—Melisa Bailey, Harford County Library System, MD
