Overview

When the man with the yellow hat takes George camping, George is very excited. There is so much to do at the campsite—pitching a tent, gathering water, meeting fellow campers—that George hardly knows where to begin (he only hopes the day will end with a roasted marshmallow!). When George’s knack for unintentional mischief gets him lost deep in the woods, George is scared . . . and being sprayed by a skunk only adds to the trouble. But George puts on a brave face, and he ends up saving the day when he puts out a small fire that could have endangered the forest.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
George is up to his old tricks. Children will be amazed at all the mischief he makes on this camping trip. Like small children, George has a short attention span. When he is asked to retrieve a bucket of water at the campsite, he doesn't get very far. George's adventures eventually end when a skunk sprays him and he tries to get rid of the smell. George climbs a tree and sees a forest fire. He grabs his bucket, fills it with water, and douses the fire. As always, George redeems himself. The story and illustrations live up to the Curious George legacy. Children will enjoy this book, and undoubtedly, identify with this lively monkey. 1999, Houghton Mifflin, Ages 2 to 6, $12.00, $7.95 and $3.95. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati

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 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 numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
