Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Though he had promised to be good, little monkeys sometimes forget..." Curious George and his friend, the man with the yellow hat, have been waiting to see this movie for a long time, and finally it's here! When his friend goes to get popcorn, George watches the beginning of the movie. Soon, inevitably, this inquisitive chimp gets curious. Is that light at the back of the theater the place where the movie comes from? Curiosity doesn't kill the cat--or the ape--but it sure gets him in a lot of messes! Quick as a wink, George has managed to get tangled up in the film, and the audience is getting restless. Luckily, resourceful George finds a way to save the day.

The wonders of modern technology, combined with creative genius, have brought Curious George to life again. Based on the original Curious George character, and written and illustrated in the style of Margret and H.A. Rey, George's latest adventure features the art of Vipah Interactive, the animators of Curious George CD-ROMs. Even the toughest critics of all--young children--will be unfazed by the melding of the traditional and the newfangled. George is still George. Curious about George's other escapades? Try The Complete Adventures of Curious George. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-These two books take a familiar, favorite character and create an imitation of his curiosity, but without the Reys' usual spark and attention to detail. In Hot Air Balloon, George is playing with an anchor rope and the balloon takes off with him aboard. It blows quite close to the nose of George Washington at Mt. Rushmore where the monkey unwittingly rescues a worker and becomes a hero. He is rewarded with a helicopter ride around the monument. When Curious George Goes to a Movie, the man with the yellow hat leaves to get popcorn and George goes up to the projection booth where he startles the projectionist, who knocks the reels off the projector. While he untangles the film, George does shadow figures to amuse the audience and again becomes a hero. Both books read like anemic summaries of the original Curious George adventures, but with the lessons eliminated. It is disconcerting that this George never receives so much as a mention of the follies of his curiosity, but is immediately rewarded for a chance good deed, which happens as part of the cover-up for his naughtiness. Both the blandness and the mixed messages make these titles bad advertising for the real Curious George.

Format: Hardcover
That said, the editorial review is quite right. The attention to detail of the original George books is absent in this one. It also misses the lesson that is supposed to be taught in the books when George does something he wasn't supposed to. However, in this book, he winds up getting out of his seat to see where the movie is coming from, upsets the projector, but never gets punished for it. He's patted on the back and given free popcorn since he saved the day by making hand shadows on the screen. Not too sure what type of message they're trying to send with this book, but since it isn't written by the Reys, it's hard to tell. I wouldn't really bank on this one - the message just isn't there and doesn't stay true to the original George books. Don't really recommend this one.

Even though this wasn't one of the original titles in the CURIOUS GEORGE series and was written and illustrated by some unknown writers and artists in an attempt to cash in on CURIOUS GEORGE, I still thoroughly enjoyed this book. I picked it up because I'm a huge movie buff and will read just about anything about the movies. I was especially impressed by how much the illustrations resemble the original drawings.
In this story the Man in the Yellow Hat takes George to see a movie. George is curious about the light in a little window high above the ground. So, while the Man in the Yellow Hat is getting snacks, George finds his way into the machine booth and causes a mess.
Children love this story because it combines the misadventures of George with something they are familiar with, movies. A delightful book.

This book was a birthday gift that my nephew loved. I ordered several Curious George books and a Curious George DVD. He was so excited to receive them. His parents were happy to have different George books to read to him and a new DVD to watch while riding in the car.

Curious George books are a classic for a reason. They are sweet, wonderful books. I read them with all of my children.
