The New Curious George's Travel Log
August 2008  Miss Miller found a new Curious George at the Little Book House at Stuyvesant Plaza, Guilderland, NY.  Curious George hopped in the car, ready to go to Maine!  Curious George spent two weeks in York Beach, Maine at the ocean with Miss Miller's family.   Tommee Tiger and Skye the American Eagle, the travel buddies from last year, came along for the ride!

He enjoyed playing in the sand with his new friends Betsy
Bear and E Pluribus Unum the Eagle.  They all helped Miss
Miller and her father make a sand castle.    A little girl
named Madison, from Florida, came over to join in the fun!  She brought her Little Mermaid. (Another little girl came to see what we'd created!)

Here are his travel photographs.  If you "click" on them, they become larger!
Cali helped Sparky
with cupcake inspection!
