Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This story has appeared in many forms, ranging from a picture book to an oversized board book. George and the man with the yellow hat are joining a field trip to the firehouse. The fire chief discusses what a firefighter does, but George being the curious monkey that he is decides to do a little exploring. He slides down a pole, tries on boots and a hat, and when an alarm sounds George gets swept up with the engine crew and races off to the fire with them. George really cannot help since he is not a trained firefighter, but he does find a way to be helpful. He entertains the children who are a bit frightened by all the commotion. The fire chief who initially is a little disturbed with George's antics changes his tune when he gets compliments for having brought a fire monkey along. Once back at the fire house, all the kids and George get to ride on the fire truck. A typical George adventure that ends well and is really a vehicle for explaining more about firefighting than anything else. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

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.

    a bit dated, but classically cute

    The content of the story line was a bit dated for firefighters and real life today, but the story as a whole is classically cute. Was a great party prize for kids at my son's fire department birthday party.

    My 1 year old loves this book

    My son loves this book. He'll bring the book to me or my husband and we have to read it two or three times in one sitting.
