Editorial Reviews

Review

"Curious George certainly deserves a spot on the shelf, and these engaging stories will provide a good exercise in imagination and creativity. A solid choice, especially with an all-new animated adventure based on the classic tales debuting as a feature film ..."

"Still, children who adore the little monkey will enjoy following him through these short adventures." -- Booklist 1/1/2000 "Booklist 1/1/2000" --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

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 studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then 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 many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.

I should have read the other reviews for the other Curious George kindle books. the type is illegible. Below the illegible type from the book, they have the text typed out. The pages repeat -- there are sometimes multiple pages from the book on one page in the ipad, and then each page is repeated again since the type is too small and blurry to read it the way they have scanned the book in -- and then the text is actually typed out on a page that does not match the picture. It's confusing. I want my 87 cents back.

Format: Paperback
When the now iconic Man in the Big Yellow Hat warns Curious George,"now don't wander off and get into trouble," we know exactly what's about to happen instead (especially since he had already rushed off). Despite his good intentions, George adventures turn into misadventures: Dousing someone's campfire, getting lost with a galloping deer, and being sprayed by a skunk that George thought was a cat. As usual in these series (story by Margret Rey, with illustrations by a team in the style of the late H.A. Rey), George's curiosity also leads to some monkey heroics. He also learns how to get rid of skunk smell (a vat of tomato juice).

Given its forest setting, this is a somewhat quieter `George book,' but there are soft forest and animal drawings and enough action for the small ones. Curious George is now "a registered trademark of the Houghton Mifflin," but the company encourages young readers to look for the `original adventures about Curious George' by the Reys. 24 pages, with pencil and watercolor illustrations on each one.

My children are big fans of curious George stories. So, I tried the Kindle edition... This is theft! The book is scanned and the text is typed again. So you end up with small pictures, twice the text (once small and difficult to read, once adapted to the kindle) and a very bad experience. There are some curious George that are "real" ebooks, so you have to check before buying.

I really wish I could preview more pages of the kids books available on amazon. There's nothing wrong with this book, but it has very little to do with camping. We really liked the halloween one, which had everything to do with halloween. This is more about George scurrying off and solving a problem in the woods. I was hoping it would help teach my son a little more about camping.

Adorable little book about everyone's favorite monkey going camping. I bought this as a surprise campfire read for our camping trip. My 5yr old loves George. He read this over and over again. Frankly, we haven't met a Curious George book we didn't like.

My daughters (3 and 5) love Curious George. We have many of the books in this series and this one is currently the favorite. We've been reading it every night for weeks. Cute story about an adorable little monkey. I never get tired of George.

I purchased Curious George to use with adult ESL (English as a Second Language) students. This version, "Curious George Goes Camping" was a lot of fun for the students to read. They especially enjoyed the pictures and the story in general. The book is of good quality and will handle being read many many times. Now that the students have been introduced to Curious George, they are looking forward to reading some of the other mishaps this cute little monkey encounters. I highly recommend the book for young children and for ESL students of all ages.

A standard Curious George book. I find myself constantly annoyed by the ridiculous things George seems to get away with because everything magically works out when he blatantly disobeys. Though, despite all that, my daughter loves him. The only real saving grace after he wanders away and deals with fire without letting an adult know first is that there is a list at the end to help guide the conversation about how George could have acted differently.
