About the Author

Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.

No, your kids won't learn how to save the world from this book but it will make them laugh and they'll enjoy reading it. I think the lesson here is more that despite getting into trouble for being a silly little monkey, George can always count on the unconditional love of the Man in the Big Yellow Hat.

Unlike many other Curious George books, this one is meant for kids to read for themselves. The Accelerated Reading designation is given as 2.7 which means the text is suitable for children reading at an advanced Second Grade level. [2.7 translates as a book that some average and mythical child should be able to read when in the 7th month of 2nd Grade. It can be enjoyed by people of any age, of course.]

My own observations about this book as a primer, is that it is sort of long, and at nearly 80 pages, although there isn't a ton of text on each page, I doubt most youngsters will be able to get through it in one sitting. But on the plus side, at our house we found it engaging and funny and it kept my son motivated to keep plugging away until it was done.

Conclusion ::: Although written as a primer for fairly advanced youngsters - at the almost 3rd Grade level - the actual plot may be too babyish for more precocious children. It was perfect though for my son who is now 6. He was laughing and chuckling throughout the book and was very motivated to keep going.

I liked this book because it reminds me of me when I was a kid. I was very curious and I got in lots of trouble and my parents still loved me like the man in the yellow hat always loved George.

A Kid's Review on December 16, 2003
Format: Paperback
I like the Curious George books alot. Ever since I was little I can remember being read to Curious George books. They are funny books about a little monkey and I think thats why kids enjoy them, but they are kind of long and I think they might not hold kids attention for just being one story.

This was a perfect replacement for the falling-apart 30 year old book my son fell in love with at Grandma's house. The story is imaginative and a great jumping off point for lots of discussions or questions with kids. We're happy to add this book to several other Curious George classics in our collection!

A Kid's Review on March 27, 2007
Format: Paperback
There is a very curious monkey called Curious George. He lives with a man with a yellow hat. One day the man with the yellow hat has to so some stuff, so he tells George to be a good monkey while he isn't there. So George stays alone and plays with his ball. he looks out of the window and sees a realy small house. He finds out its a bunny house so he plays with one and he puts it back. Then from behind the wall he sees a large pole with a string. he folowed the fisher and saw him fish.then he made his own fishing pole but never caught a fish. Then he falls in the lake and Bill passes by. Then George gets out and Bill shows him his kite fly. George then holds it while Bill gets his bike so George lifts up the kite and lifts him up. Luckly then man with a yellow hat got home,got a helicopter and saved George and Bill gave him a baby bunny.

We own almost every Curious George book that has been published, either paperback or a collection of stories in a hardcover. I noticed we were missing one, so I ordered this without really reading anything about it. When it arrived as a stocking stuffer for Christmas, I was surprised at how thick it is! Our kids (ages 4 and 2) really enjoy it, but sometimes we have to put it off for another night if it's late and the kids need to get to sleep. It's almost like a few different Curious George books combined into one.

Overall, though, it's a very cute book and I'm glad I bought it. It came with a read-along CD, which we have yet to try out. This is certainly a must-have for those who love Curious George!

(As a side note, Curious George is not actually a "monkey," because monkeys have tails. George is an ape.) :o)
