Curious George and The Man with the Yellow Hat are having a wonderful time getting ready for Christmas. There’s only one dilemma—neither of them can figure out what to give the other for a present!

The Man finds George’s wish list filled with geometric shapes and other indecipherable images. And George doesn’t have a clue what to get The Man who has everything.

What ensues is a twelve-day merry montage of Man and Monkey Mayhem involving all your favorite CURIOUS GEORGE characters—including Hundley, the Pisghettis, Gnocchi, Bill, Betsy and Steve.

Through it all George tries repeatedly to create a homemade gift for The Man, and The Man enlists everybody and everything trying to decipher George’s cryptic Christmas list.

In the end, both gift-giving predicaments are simply and beautifully resolved revealing the true spirit of the holiday season. We won’t spoil it for you by telling how, just suffice to say, it all works out for the best, and everybody has A Very Monkey Christmas!
