Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Created in the style of the original Curious George books, this story tells how Curious George inadvertently causes a sensation at his first Halloween costume party. When he and his friend arrive at Mrs. Gray's house, George learns that it is a costume party. Since he wasn't wearing one, generous Mrs. Gray lets him find a costume in her dress-up trunk. Curious George decides to be a cowboy and while jumping on the bed to see himself in the mirror, he knocks out the lights. George ends up scared and scaring the party guests, but of course all ends well and George even wins prizes for his costumes. The plot is a little complex but should appeal to fans of other Curious George books. 2001, Houghton Mifflin, $3.95. Ages 3 to 7. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
ea. vol: adapt. illus. CIP. Houghton. 1986. PLB $8.95; pap. $2.95. PreSGr 2 No doubt that those children who love the original ``Curious George'' titles (Houghton) will choose to read these booksbut they will surely be disappointed. The text, adapted from a film series, is trite. The plots are slight and lack the richness of language found in the orignal titles. The illustrations seem to be blurry prints of some of the film frames. Even the layout of the text with the illustrations is stagnant. In each of the four books, George is confronted with a problem of singular dimension that he resolves as a result of his curiosity. Children who are just beginning to read about this inquisitive primate will be best served by the many ``original'' titles still in print; the language in them is more stimulating, the plots more satisfying, and the illustrations and layout more interesting.

Meet the Author

H. A. and Margret Rey

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.

    Another great Curious George Book

    Just like every other CG book it revolves around a fun topic engaging for young readers that can be read over and over and over ... and as a parent I just don't get tired of reading it like I do so many other books!
