Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
George wants to hold a bunny. He is curious about how it would feel. Then he decides that it would be fun to play hide-and-seek. The little bunny runs away and hides but George can't find him. Clever George finally finds his pal with a little help from mama bunny. The friendly monkey's exploits have been adapted in a series of board books including Curious George's ABC's, Curious Georges' Are You Curious?, and Curious George's Opposites
Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
George is as curious as ever in this board book designed for young readers’ enjoyment. His curiosity brings him to the bunny house, where he opens its door to see what it’s like to hold a bunny. But his idea almost backfires when he puts the bunny down to play hide-and-seek with it and the bunny runs off. George is miserable, thinking the bunny is lost, until he comes up with an idea on how to fix things. This perfectly sized board book has pages a youngster can turn easily when looking at the pictures over and over. In addition, the tale is easy to follow and short enough to hold a youngster’s attention. Text is kept to a minimum, so pages can be turned fairy quickly. Each spread features the word “bunny,” thus helping children relate to learning a word that they may read in other stories. All sentences are short and keep the pace going. This is one book in the “Curious George” series and the illustrations are similar to those in other George books and worth looking at again and again. It is likely that children will be encouraged to see and hear more of the books with George tales. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury; Ages 2 to 4.

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.
