Curious George in Super George by Liza Charlesworth - OPTIONAL

Charlesworth, Liza Curious George in Super George, illustrated by Fran Brylewska and David Brylewski. EARLY READER. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018. $10. 9781328736239 
George and his friend watch a show about superheroes, so they dress George up as a super hero and go around town trying to save the day.  What they really end up doing is making mischief everywhere.  When they finally decide to take a break from hero-ing, they are flying a kite when they run into two robbers, who have robbed the man in the yellow hat, so they are given the chance to actually save the day. 
At the beginning of the book, George’s friend isn’t given a name and the man in the yellow hat doesn’t make an appearance until the end, so it’s unlike most Curious George formats.  I also didn’t like that George’s friend seemed to just egg him on and make trouble.  The illustrations are cute, but the story line in this book wasn’t my favorite.
EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
