Book Description

Inspired by a vignette in the classic Curious George Flies a Kite, this amusing episode shows George at his curious best trying to catch a fish.



Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

ea. vol: 32p. adapt. illus. CIP. Houghton. 1987. PLB $8.95; pap. $2.95. Kindergarten-Grade 2 These stories, adapted from filmstrips, are very short, and are shorter on plot and action than the original series. Predictably, each page looks like one filmstrip frame with a caption below. In Curious George Goes Fishing, George tries his hand at fishingbut he catches only the fish in a man's frying pan, which he casts into the water. In Curious George Vis its a Police Station , George delights in swinging from the barred doors of the jail cells in the new police station. He proceeds to lock up the police chief and the mayor. In both books, the young monkey redeems himself. These short stories don't have the read-aloud charm of the original ``Cu rious George'' books (Houghton), but for youngsters who desperately want any Curious George book, they will do. Deirdre R. Murray, Pine Road School, Huntingdon Valley, Pa.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Board Book! January 2, 2013
By Nan
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
We love this book and read it often. We've had it several years now. Note this is a board book, which is much more durable for younger children. A great way to introduce Curious George to tots! I've read it multiple times and do not get tired of it. Curious George sees a guy going fishing, and it looks so interesting that he wants to also. He makes his own fishing pole and gets a little creative with the bait too! Very happy with the quality of the book, and very pleased with the story itself! The pictures were wonderful and the text was just the right amount and worded nicely for young children.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Little Book! June 29, 2008
By C.Frye

I purchased this little book as a companion gift to the Paz - Ready Set Learn fishing kit. I was surprised that it has a cardboard cover and pages. It's a very durable little book w/great illustrations. Our 3 yr old neighbor is thrilled w/it!

My son is about to go on his first fishing trip with Dad... he's only 3 1/2, so this was a great book to get him thinking about fishing. He loves it, and thinks it's funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Board Book September 5, 2013

Ordered this for our youngest grandson's first birthday. We know he will love it. Good sturdy book. Classic story is shortened version for little ones, which is good, as sometimes George isn't the best role model.
