Created by Margret Rey and her husband H.A. Rey, the mischievous monkey Curious George has delighted millions of readers for more than 50 years with his hilarious hijinks. After the birth of Curious George in 1941, six titles completed the series, which have since been translated into 12 languages. This wonderful 416-page collector's edition (with all seven of the original Curious George titles in one colorfully illustrated volume) features Curious George, Curious George Takes a Job, Curious George Rides a Bike, Curious George Gets a Medal, Curious George Flies a Kite, Curious George Learns the Alphabet, and Curious George Goes to the Hospital. The intrepid monkey--who represents the insatiably curious (and invariably accident-prone) soul in all of us-- captures the heart of everyone he meets.

i honestly think these are awesome, and my daughter loves them too. it's nice to see something that hasn't been sterilized for easy consumption.
edit: this review is ONLY for "The Complete Adventures of Curious George: 70th Anniversary Edition". amazon is pulling it into the board book collection for some reason, and those ARE sterilized for the modern age.
The true hero of this purchase, though, is the fact that it comes with two CDs that have ALL the stories on them! When I first noticed this I was surprised and not that excited-- CDs are great, but I wasn't sure how often I'd use them. Over the summer, however, they've been a lifesaver! My 3-year-old has learned to follow the story along in the book while listening to the recording, and will ask for it over and over and over again. Far better than just having him watch TV, in my opinion.
Absolutely wonderful purchase, so happy with it!
I found the quality of this volume to be consistent with other mass-produced hard-bound books which are not deluxe, collector's, or limited edition copies. This allows the book to be priced reasonably and within the budgets of more individuals. I applaud the publishers for realizing that more expensive editions might have limited the number of families able to acquire The Complete Adventures of Curious George, Anniversary Edition.
I would not recommend giving this book to a child who will not be having a parent read to them. The volume is large and heavy enough to be unwieldy for small children. It is, however, a wonderful book to give to a family who values reading aloud to their children, to grandparents who want to limit shelf space for their grandchildren's books, or to yourself as a treat. It is a classic and a five-star work!
I was able to purchase this from an Amazon seller, so if it is unavailable when you want one, be sure to look at those offerings. My book arrived in perfect condition and was a real bargain.
