Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
An entire industry has been created out of Curious George. Whether the Reys would have approved of their mischievous monkey communicating by "che-che-chees" in kiddie television cartoons is a moot point. This small two-part novelty composed of book and rubber-ducky-surrogate-boat, however, might have passed muster with them. The foam-filled waterproof pages of the bathtub book—all five of them—feature George at his most unpretentious. He sits in his bath-size red boat admiring gulls, dropping an anchor overboard ("PLOP!"), and just generally exhibiting his trademark fresh-from-the-beginning-of-the-world enthusiasm ("OH, MY!"). In short, this very brief sort-of-story works. The squeaky little yellow rubber tugboat included in the package for toddlers to float while bathing is also cute. Go ahead and try it. You are allowed to splash, too! Reviewer: Kathleen Karr
With a "squeeze me, squeak me" floatable boat and a vinyl story book, what more could any young bather want? A cleansing conclusion to the Curious Baby line.

Meet 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.
