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.-Shauna Yusko, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA

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.
