About the Author

The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be, Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father’s home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys’ home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including SPOTTY, PRETZEL, and lift-the-flap books such as HOW DO YOU GET THERE? The manuscript of 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. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. 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.

My 22 month old son loves to watch Curious George so of course I bought a few books. Out of the 4 Curious George books, this is by far his favorite. He'll ask for it by name. George...Ice cream. Great addition to our book collection.

Cute story, but why does Mr. Herb have to get so mad? He left a monkey alone with a ton of ice cream, what did he think was going to happen? He really looked like he was going to lose it. I was also disappointed in the pictures, they seemed like a high school kid's interpretation of Curious George, rather than the usual one. My 2.5 year old still liked it, but it's definitely not the best.

Picture books on Kindle with text and picture on same page have been difficult for me to find. But this particular Curious George title is absolutely perfection for Kindle grayscale. It's perfect in Fire too!
My grandkids love it. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

My daughter loves Curious George, so I tend to buy any of the George books. This is the first one that disappoints. It does not start off with "This is George. He was a good little monkey and always very curious.". I also feel like Mr. Herb gets a little too angry at George--so I usually just change the story a little for my 2 year olds ears The illustrations are also not the originals.

Good book. It's one of the older George stories and drawings, not one of the newer George stories and drawings.
