Review:

"Though he had promised to be good, little monkeys sometimes forget..." Curious George and his friend, the man with the yellow hat, have been waiting to see this movie for a long time, and finally it's here! When his friend goes to get popcorn, George watches the beginning of the movie. Soon, inevitably, this inquisitive chimp gets curious. Is that light at the back of the theater the place where the movie comes from? Curiosity doesn't kill the cat--or the ape--but it sure gets him in a lot of messes! Quick as a wink, George has managed to get tangled up in the film, and the audience is getting restless. Luckily, resourceful George finds a way to save the day.

The wonders of modern technology, combined with creative genius, have brought Curious George to life again. Based on the original Curious George character, and written and illustrated in the style of Margret and H.A. Rey, George's latest adventure features the art of Vipah Interactive, the animators of Curious George CD-ROMs. Even the toughest critics of all--young children--will be unfazed by the melding of the traditional and the newfangled. George is still George. Curious about George's other escapades? Try The Complete Adventures of Curious George. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

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 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 numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
