Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
George and his friend with the yellow hat want to see the new rain forest exhibit at the zoo. They arrive before it opens, so they decide to visit the animals at the zoo. After they see a zookeeper feeding the animals, George gets some peanuts and starts to feed the animals. He feeds the crocodile, the koalas, the elephant, and a baby kangaroo. The zookeeper sees what George is doing and runs after him. George imagines he must be doing something wrong and runs away. He does not get far before he is discovered, and the zookeeper explains to him that he can make the animals sick by feeding them the wrong food. Just then, a parrot that has been missing swoops down and grabs one of George's peanuts. They zookeepers are happy to have found the parrot, and George gets to help mend the parrot's cage. While the book involves the same familiar characters and the familiar artwork from the original series, somehow it lacks the creative touch of the old days. This book comes in a package with an audio CD that includes two tracks of the story, one with page-turn signals and the other without.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-The timeless antics of Curious George are given new life in this read-along series, which faithfully follows the text of each story. A male narrator, accompanied by minimal musical interludes and sound effects, reads the story, once with page-turn signals and once without on each CD. Sounds effects occasionally explain pertinent parts of the unspoken story, like a splash in the water when George takes a dive into the ocean. Curious George Feeds the Animals has a female reader, with a male counterpart reading the Man with the Yellow Hat's lines. Margaret and H.A. Rey's original character has been entertaining children for decades, but it's hard to imagine a child today who wouldn't be puzzled by The Man with the Yellow Hat plucking George from his environment and transporting him to another country, George's imprisonment (and jail-break!) for inadvertently dialing the fire department while playing with the phone, or the fact that the Man in the Yellow Hat leaves his charge unattended when he takes him to a movie. Still, a naughty anthropomorphic monkey is entertaining, and adults may want to take the opportunity to explain to pint-sized listeners that their monkey-shines won't warrant the same results. Curious George certainly deserves a spot on the shelf, and these engaging stories will provide a good exercise in imagination and creativity. A solid choice, especially with an all-new animated adventure based on the classic tales debuting as a feature film in February 2006.-Kirsten Martindale, formerly Menomonie Public Library, WI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

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.
