We’ll be celebrating the 75th anniversary of Curious George with a big Village House of Books party all about curiosity. Our favorite curious simian has been curious about Los Gatos for a long time (He wants to find out where those cats are and if they will be friends with him), and the Man in the Yellow Hat is finally letting him come here! Get your picture with George!

Curious George is bringing some friends with him, 4 authors of children’s books who are super excited to meet you too! You can meet Jennifer Castro (Mom*Me), Tiffany Papageorge (My Yellow Balloon) Alina Sayers, (Illuminator’s Gift/Illuminator’s Test) and C Lee Mckenzie (Alligators Overhead/The Great Timelock Disaster).

In the afternoon, you can come along to join the hunt with Curious George on the Book Scavenger Hunt…you will be given a series of book-themed puzzles to solve. The First 5 people to solve 3 Book-themed puzzles win a $25 VHOB Gift Card and a signed copy of Book Scavenger!
