Curious George Flies a Kite is a children's book written for beginning readers by Margret Rey, illustrated by H. A. Rey, and published by Houghton Mifflin in 1958. It is the fifth book in the original Curious George series and the only one the Reys did not write together.


Curious George, left alone at home with his new ball, looks out the window and sees a small house. He jumps out the window, inside the house sees a lot of rabbits. He accidentally lets one out, plays hide and seek with the bunny, and lets it back in the house.

As George walks back home, he sees a fisherman fishing and is inspired to fish too. But instead, he uses cake (for fishing bait) and catches no fish. After two failed attempts for catching the fish, he eats the rest of the cake (as he realized he loved cake too). Then, he tries another way to catch fish, but ends up falling into the water. The neighbor boy, Bill, helps him get out. He tells George that even though George did not catch any fish, the good news is that none of the fish eat him. Then Bill shows him his new kite. He lets George watch it while he gets his bicycle.

George flies the kite. At first, he thinks it would be okay to fly it. But when he tries that, the kite soon flies off with him. The Man with the Yellow Hat asks Bill if he saw George, and soon sees him up in the sky with the kite. The Man with the Yellow Hat did not wait to hear any more from Bill, so he said, "Then I must have George back! I MUST get him back!". So the Man rescues him by helicopter. George returns the kite to Bill, who in return gives him the bunny.
