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. Visit www.curiousgeorge.com.

From School Library Journal:

ea. vol: adapt. illus. CIP. Houghton. 1986. PLB $8.95; pap. $2.95. PreSGrade 2 No doubt that those children who love the original ``Curious George'' titles (Houghton) will choose to read these booksbut they will surely be disappointed. The text, adapted from a film series, is trite. The plots are slight and lack the richness of language found in the orignal titles. The illustrations seem to be blurry prints of some of the film frames. Even the layout of the text with the illustrations is stagnant. In each of the four books, George is confronted with a problem of singular dimension that he resolves as a result of his curiosity. Children who are just beginning to read about this inquisitive primate will be best served by the many ``original'' titles still in print; the language in them is more stimulating, the plots more satisfying, and the illustrations and layout more interesting.
