Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This trio of unabridged paperback miniatures of the classic Curious George titles is sure to please your favorite little monkey. Held together in a paper box, this compact set manages to get a large dose of curious primate into a small space--just what you need for long trips. Curious George is the original story, in which the Man in the Yellow Hat finds George in the jungle and brings him home. In Curious George Rides a Bike, George's antics on his birthday two-wheeler lead to a job in the circus. And Curious George Gets a Medal is the story of how a series of accidents leads George to become an astronaut. All three titles are from the original series, not to be confused with the inferior illustrations (and stories) that came out of the Curious George films. Since the appeal of the always-curious monkey is so intense and apparently so timeless, it's odd (dare we say "curious"?) that the one title to have aged badly is the first, with its very un-modern attitude to the capture of a jungle animal. But even if this bothers parents it's unlikely to be noticed by George's younger devotees. (Ages 3 to 6) --Richard Farr

Review

"There is originality and a childlike humor in both the amusing antics and engaging pictures." Booklist, ALA

Our daughter loves her Curious George books (she's barely 2 years old) and particularly loves the illustrations as well as the stories that are narrated in these books. Our only concern is that the words in this miniature set are so small that it isn't practical to use these books to teach her to read. If this is of concern to you, then you are better off paying more money and getting the larger books, otherwise these books are great!

Of all the CG's out there today, these are the ones I remember from when I was a 2-5 year old in the 1970's. My nearly 2-year old can handle these small books, and they are great for holding up and reading in bed. These may not be the books that you will pass on to your great grand kids,( paperback and small), but you will get great usage of them.
The stories are simple and well told about a little monkey ( actually a chimp, no tail, right :-) ),who explores new environments everyday. Everyone will read them from a different perspective.
My son likes them because CG explores all kinds of things. He has animals, boats, bikes,lorries etc, to point at and recognize from the real world.
I like them because, CG is just exploring, not trying to do things wrong, just like my son. Most of the things CG gets into, can be good if looked at from another point of view, you just have to look for that view. Its the same with children.
Even if some things may not be "politically correct", some thirty years later, your kids will ask you why, and you can explain.

I bought this set because our family travels quite a bit; we live overseas. Our daughter LOVES the books--the content is a lot of fun. However, as far as being suitable for travel, the set's main advantage is only its size. It is nice to be able to slip the books in anywhere. However, the thin box soon began to fall apart, and the binding on each book hasn't held the back pages well. As far books to take traveling, I should have chosen something bound better, like a hardcover.
