It was a hot morning, and a dozen little children sat in the shade of a leafy tree. Their teacher was reading to them, but they couldn't keep their minds on the story. They were waiting for a birthday party to begin. The Chester County Library in Exton threw the party last Thursday to celebrate the 50th birthday of Margret Rey's book character, Curious George - a good little monkey who is always getting into trouble because he is so curious. Teacher Belinda Trani attempted to hold the interest of the 2- to 5-year- olds while hundreds of others waited in line, but they couldn't help themselves.

Curious George, the young pit bull found starving on a Delaware County road, will be spending the holidays in his new home. On Tuesday, the pooch was presented to his new owners, Aimee and Eric Tysarczyk of Bryn Mawr, before a horde of photographers and reporters who captured every doggy smooch on camera. George took the event in stride, even showing off some new tricks for the crowd. The Montgomery County couple had been looking to adopt a dog when they spotted George's photo and story on the Delaware County SPCA website.

Like the beloved series of children's books that inspired it, Curious George uses crayon-box colors to paint the adventures of the inquisitive monkey who cruises from African jungle to urban jungle buoyed by an irresistible smile and the occasional balloon. For the most part, this delightful cartoon is hand-drawn, like the cheerful Margret and H.A. Rey books on which it is based. Likewise, it boasts the simple imagery and mischievous adventures that made the monkey a hero of every child who ever dreamed of dipping mitts into a paint can and decorating the living-room walls with handprints.

A monkey was the business yesterday of a state Superior Court judge who has been asked to help decide the fate of a primate taken from its Gloucester County home. Curious George, an 11-year-old capuchin monkey, had lived most of his life with a Mullica Hill family, who bought him from a breeder in Pennsylvania. Although George may have looked harmless in his tiny trousers and knit shirt, monkeys are considered potentially dangerous animals in New Jersey. So when an anonymous tip brought armed state wildlife agents to the home of Conrad and Debra Ann Stipp at 8 a.m. on Feb. 16, the monkey left with the agents.

A dog that shelter workers called the victim of the worst cruelty they had ever seen is recovering at the Delaware County SPCA. It will be five to seven days before it is known if the pit bull-boxer mix, dubbed Curious George for his curious nature, will survive, said Justina Calgiano, spokesperson for the Media-based shelter. The dog weighs 35 pounds, half what it should, she said. His nails are overgrown, and he has sores on his backside, probably the result of sitting too long in one spot.

A reward of $1,000 has been posted for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for abusing a young pit-bull mix turned over to the Delaware County SPCA this week. The reward was posted by Justice Rescue, a tristate animal-rights group. Curious George, as the dog has been named, is continuing to recover at the Media-based shelter, said Justina Calgiano, spokesperson. The extremely underweight pup has gained four pounds since he arrived on Monday, she said.

IN THIS time of few happy endings, I'd like to share this story: On a recent Monday, my husband and our 6-year-old son, Jeffrey, were running an errand in Cherry Hill. During the ride, Jeffrey fell asleep and his Curious George doll, "Georgie," slipped out of his hands and fell onto the road. When Georgie's absence was discovered, my husband and son went searching for him, but no sign of Georgie. Jeffrey was devastated. So I created a flyer and had 200 copies made. We put them in mail boxes and on poles.

Dogs give us plenty of reasons to love them. But to truly appreciate them, says Willard Whitson, we need to learn more about them. Whitson is director of exhibits at the Academy of Natural Sciences, where a new show - "Dogs: Wolf, Myth, Hero & Friend" - will open Saturday. Visitors can try to guess what dogs are saying in a "howling area," compare their sense of smell with a dog's, and learn about the ways dogs help people. "Through their love of dogs, they will learn about evolution, they will learn about behavior, they'll learn about the differences between feral and domestic dogs - and they'll have a good time," Whitson says.

TATTLE ISN'T one to criticize May-December romances, but January -December? When we consider that 84-year-old Hugh Hefner is engaged to marry 23-year-old Crystal Harris , it makes us realize that a possible Mrs. Tattle may not even be born yet. OK, that's kind of weird. So what would prompt a woman to marry a man who was AARP-eligible a decade before she was born? 1) It's easy to say "Money," but there are plenty of men richer than Hef who haven't hit their midlife crisis yet and would happily wed a Playmate.

During the opening credits of Wild Grass , a bizarre and stubbornly entertaining film from octogenarian French filmmaker Alain Resnais, the camera glides over a stretch of broken pavement where grass grows in the cracks. This image of nature defying human order proves to be an apt metaphor for Resnais' movie about a troubled and troublesome man who does the same. The apparent crackpot is one Georges Palet (André Dussolier), an unpredictable married man of around 60. Georges stalks Marguerite Muir (Sabine Azéma)

Star power is an important factor in prime time this year with actors such as James Woods and Ray Liotta, known for their film work, taking on TV series. Well, kids' TV has attracted some big names as well this season, as proven by a pair of preschool cartoons. Curious George is having himself a moment. After slaving away for decades in the children's books by Margaret and H.A. Rey, the little monkey went Hollywood this year with costar Will Ferrell and music by Jack Johnson. Now he's got his own PBS series (weekdays at noon on WHYY)
