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

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.

    terrible graphics

    Pictures are not scanned nicely and can not be enlarged, making it difficult for my son to see the details in the illustrations.
