Imagine what fun Curious George (who's been getting into trouble for over 50 years now) can have inside a chocolate factory! Narrator George Capaccio capitalizes on the potential for entertainment (he's especially enthusiastic about the different varieties of chocolates) while maintaining a well-paced, straightforward reading. This approach works well because there's a lot going on here besides his narration: Jazzy music speeds up as the story's pace quickens, and light background noises represent the candy machine at work. At first, these machine noises puzzle the listening adult (it sounds as if the story was produced in a parking lot), but kids are unlikely to notice. The biggest complaint you'll get from them is that this story makes them hungry! J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
