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.

Format: Paperback
This past weekend we visited a bookstore and my son wanted not one, but SEVEN Curious George books to add to his collection (he already had several at home). Curious George's Dinosaur Discovery was one of the books we bought.

This 24-page book was written in 2006 by Catherine Hapka with illustrations by Anna Grossnickle Hines (done in the style of H.A. Rey). In this story, the Man With the Yellow Hat takes George on an adventure to the museum. But much to George's surprise, they keep walking THROUGH the museum and out the back door.

Where were they going?, wondered George. Well, it turns out that George's friend had a surprise; they were going to drive to an archeological dig with scientists and volunteers!

As usual, George's curiousity gets the better of him and, while trying to imitate the digging, sifting and brushing of the scientist, he gets into some mischief!

George assumes that the scientists will be mad, so he starts climbing the hill--and keeps climbing very high. But when he looks down, he realizes that the scientists weren't made at all. In fact, they were pointing excitedly.

What were they pointing at?

This engaging tale is one of the most interesting of the Curious George books in my opinion and, of course, my son loves it! It's geared towards ages 4-8, so it's also good for beginning/intermediate readers.

While this book says "Bonus Activities Inside", there's only a word scramble game on the back inside cover (only 6 words). Also, there are three finger puppets on the back cover that you can photocopy then cut out, tape and use for acting out the story.

I was pleased to see that the main scientist was a woman--so here's to girl power!

My three year old son really likes Curious George and he seemed to like this book. It has some updated aspects (with the new author) to make it more PC for the 2000s while still keeping that curious monkey ever so lovable. The illustrations are bright and George is easily recognizable. I recommend this fun story that combines George with another childhood favorite, dinosaurs.
