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.

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.

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

Curious George Goes Camping 3.5 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 177 reviews.

As other reviews mention, this book is not formatted correctly for the Nook and is essentially worthless. You can't get the words and illustrations to show up on the same page. For whatever reason no reviews showed up when purchasing from the Nook either. Barnes&Noble shouldn't even be selling this here, or at least offer a sample or opportunity to refund the purchase. I know it's only two bucks, but a ripoff is a ripoff and I won't ever buy another Nook e-book from Barnes&Noble without reviews.

The pictures and words did not show up properly in the Nook. I have another Curious George book that works fine on the Nook but this one did not work like the other one does.

Didn't show up right on the nook. Lots of double pictures, and the text was in weird places too.

Exact same issue. some of the pictures double, covering up text, making it impossible to read the book. My 2 year old is not happy.

Our family loves CG & I thought this would be a great addition to my nook to entertain kids while waiting anywhere (since I always have my nook w/ me anyway). Once I opened the book I was extremely disappointed in the formatting. Should have read the online reviews before spending the $.

Curious George teaches your kids about safety at campgrounds and the danger of forest fires. Definitely Smoky the Bearish.

Agree with everyone else; this book cannot be read on the Nook, and it's not fair that reviews saying so don't show up when you're purchasing through the Nook. It needs to be properly formatted or a refund issued.

This book is very difficult to read with tiny pictures and text and duplicate text and pics. In some places the text is nearly impossible to read. The story is cute though.
