Curious George, your days are numbered
I finally found the first Curious George book and gleefully checked it out so Isaac could have some context for all those miserable Curious George sequel books he was obsessed with in Sudan. We got to the climax of the story, the page where Curious George has dialed the fire department's number and they have responded and burst into the room, realizing the call was false. Curious George tries to escape by running out the window but gets tangled in the phone cord and the firefighters grab him. Isaac examined the picture for a while and then pointed at the telephone. "What's that?" he asked. The child, I realized, has never seen a phone with a cord.
