Editorial Reviews

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.

My son received this book over a year ago at age two. He LOVES it. We have to read at least one Curious George story every night. All eight stories are wonderful Curious George tales (Takes a Train, Visits a Toy Store, and the Dump Truck, Goes Camping, and the Birthday Surprise, Goes to a Costume Party, Visits the Library, in the Big City). To address one CG reviewer's concern, neither George nor the Man with the Yellow Hat smoke in any of these stories. This collection has held up well with the usage and is a great price. I highly recommend it.

I was disappointed with this book; I ordered it online without realizing that it was a recent publication, illustrated 'in the style of' H.A. Rey. Both the illustrations and the stories lack the charm of the originals.

Our daughter LOVES Curious George- we already had the "Complete Adventures of Curious George" when we decided to buy the "Treasury".

We were aware that the "Treasury" was not by the original authors, but rather "inspired" by their work, and were a bit hesitant to purchase it, particularly based on a few less than flattering comments on the [..] website- some found it formulaic, drawings uninspired, etc.

We were pleased with our purchase. Our daughter loves this book, currently more than "Adventures", likely because she hasn't completely memorized it!

The illustrations are good (if perhaps subtly different than H.A. Rey's), the plot lines entertaining (maybe stories about a mischievous monkey can't help but be to be a bit formulaic). These books were written in the 1990s and 2000s, so it's not surprising that no one smokes in them and minorities are more visible (without, in our opinion, the books striving to be overwhelmingly politically correct).

But reading "Curious George Visits the Big City", obviously set in New York, saddened us. There's a scene where George is looking out over the city, and what look to be the World Trade Center is visible in the distance. This particular book was written in the 90s, based on a view that today's children will never see.

If your children liked the original George book, they will enjoy this one too. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This is a fairly cynical effort by a publisher trying to wring every last penny out of the creation of a deceased author. Although the book cover says in prominent lettering, "Margaret and H.A. Rey", do not be fooled. They had nothing to do with this. Rather, every story is "in the style of" Margaret and H.A. Rey. It's pretty obvious the stories were churned out as quickly as possible, as they all have basically the same plot, same resolution. Do a little research, get the original Curious George books by the Reys, and you'll be much happier.

While these stories are classic George and what you expect, the kindle format is anything but readable. The book is basically scanned and re-subtitled under the illustrations. It does not work well at all on my reader and is a waste of money. It is absolutely frustrating to try and read this in a dim room at night time, I'll stick to Thomas the Train books, they seemed to be actually made for an e-reader. Until I see a review that states these are improved for the e-book format I'll pass.

These stories do not have the same charm or creative plot lines as those 'originals'. The majority are stories of a monkey running off and doing things he shouldn't but in the end is praised for it. Yawn. My toddlers like the illustrations but some stories could use a lot more creativity and down-to-earthness (if that is possible with a book about a monkey). There seem to be no realistic consequences and the man in the yellow hat is always taking George somewhere and then letting him run off. Predictable.

Not a horrible read but certainly not the classics. I wish I had just checked it out from the library.

I purchased this book as a gift for my nephew (5 years old), and I had it shipped directly to him. When I went to visit and saw the book , I was really surprised at how thick it was. When I was a kid, I always thought there weren't enough Curious George stories. I wish I'd had this book back then. Since he's only had it for a few months, I haven't seen any of the book binding issues that other reviewers have mentioned. I definitely think that, for the price, it's a great buy.

It was a delight to read these stories to my grandson and remember back when I was first introduced to Curious George so many years ago. These stories are timeless and are as interesting and funny now as they were generations ago! My grandson thoroughly enjoyed the book as much as I enjoyed sharing it with him. He is five years old. Curious George continues to live and will live forever! I highly recommend this book!
