Happy Valentine's Day, Curious George!

N. Di Angelo, illus. by Mary O'Keefe Young, HMH Books, $8.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-547-13107-8

As George and friends decorate for Valentine's Day, foldout flaps reveal the upshots of George's curiosity. George tests to see how big his heart-shaped balloon can get (under the flap, the balloon explodes, "pop!"), juggles three tubes of cookie icing, and experiments with a big box of decorations. Fans should appreciate Young's illustrations, in classic Rey style, which are tweaked with red foil accents and interactive features. Ages 3–7. (Jan.)
