Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In this unabridged recording about the curious little monkey, George and the man with the yellow hat stop at a chocolate store. George becomes curious about how chocolates are made and joins a tour of the factory. He is soon off on his own to investigate and, of course, mischief ensues. This lively retelling reflects George's adventure nicely and is accompanied by synthesized music and some sound effects. Side one of the tape includes page-turning signals, while side two contains an uninterrupted reading. The accompanying book (HM, 1998) is "written and illustrated in the style of Margret and H.A. Rey," and features the art of Vipah Interactive, the animators of the Curious George CD-ROMs. This book and tape set would be a popular purchase for school and public libraries.

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.

This story is delightful. We bought it because we were taking our 2.5 yr old along on a ski trip and wanted him to have a silly little story that related to the mountain and skiing (even though he's not on skis yet). Well, it is just that... and more. He's learned a lot, developed an interest in skiing (maybe next year) and always gets a good laugh out of this book! It's also fun that George seems to invent snowboarding - my husband and I got a big kick out of that and have shared the story with many adult friends (isn't everyone a Curious Geroge fan?)!

IMPORTANT: The structure of the story and the illustrations maintain the integrity of the original series!!

I was hoping to read this with my son on my kindle, but the print was way too small and I couldn't increase the font like most books. It was a total waste of money. My son was so intrigued by the kindle, but ultimately disappointed. Why would you offer a download like this if its barely legible??

Though not as bad as the books with illustrations exerpted from the movie, this book is illustrated in the STYLE of H.A. Rey, by Vipah Interactive. Somehow, somewhere these books have lost the charm of the originals. I would have liked to know this before buying them. My kids still like them; I am horrified.

Format: Paperback
Illustrated and written in the style of original authors, Margaret and H.A. Rey, this 1998 release finds George and the infamous man in the yellow hat visiting a chocolate factory. When the yellow-hatted man tells George "wait here while I buy these, and please stay out of trouble," you KNOW that George will do exactly the opposite. After all, George is CURIOUS, and his inquiring personality and sweet tooth lead him deeper and deeper into the inner workings of the factory, where he gets into more trouble. His quick hands and mouth save the factory from his own curiosity-inspired havoc, and George goes home happy and full.
While not as clever as some of the earlier books in the series, the chocolate factory setting is inspired. Page 10, for example, depicts seven different mouth-watering chocolates. Little ones will understand George's interest in the making of chocolates, and his accidental, temporary wrecking of the assembly line. Again, I don't think it's quite up to the high standards of some of the other "Curious George" books. Twenty-two pages, with understated watercolor and pencil illustrations on each page.

Awful. The book itself is of course great because it's Curious George and it's awesome. But the Kindle edition left me feeling ripped off. And it was only 3 bucks!That's how bad it is. The pictures are shrunken and pixelated and blurry. As is the text. It's readable because under the actual page, which looks like it was merely photocopied. there is the text from the book repeated in modern legible font. Guess I'll stick to the paperbacks and hardcovers and put off bringing my daughter into the world of digital books.

We enjoyed seeing George get into trouble and then, as always, end up saving the day. We learned how to tell what's inside a piece of chocolate by looking at the swirls on top. We tested that fact ourselves and it works!

The Kindle version is just a scanned version of the original paper version. I would expect to at see sharper graphics and better integrated text. It's readable and my son enjoys it but overall a disappointing product.

the story is great but the text is actually an image rather than real text. it is very small. you cannot adjust the font because the text is just part of the illustration. they cut corners with this one. curious george at the beach is done the way it should be.
