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.

From AudioFile

[Editors Note: This is a combined review with CURIOUS GEORGE GETS A MEDAL.]--On George the monkeys first camping trip with the Man in the Yellow Hat new experiences such as pitching a tent and roasting marshmallows bring fun. But when a problem arises, how will George redeem himself? In the second book, a letter arrives for George. What adventure awaits once the Man with the Yellow Hat reads it to him? How do a flood, a cow, a museum, a professor, and jumping from a space vehicle connect to Curious George? In these zippy new productions narrator George Capaccio brings a lively animation to each role. Upbeat music and a myriad of sound effects accompany Curious Georges escapades.

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.

My son loves this story. It will help him prepare for our first family camping trip this spring. Teaches about fire-safety.

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.

The George books are all awesome! Our 4 year-old son has liked every one, and we've liked them. They're pretty quick and easy reading, takes 3-5 minutes to complete, depending on how long he want's to look at each page after you're done reading them. But they are good, cute stories, just like the shows, he laughs out loud and comments quite a bit as we're reading. If you watch the show and haven't read any of the books before, they are very similar in style and look to each other, as close as a kids book to a kids show can be. No one book has been any better or worse than any of the others, they're all very good. We will probably end up buying them all.

My daughter just loves curious George and in fact that was her last birthday theme. We gave out an assortment of these as favors. Everyone loved the idea.
