Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is seven pm and time to settle down for the night, and for many kids there is a regular nighttime ritual just like George's. He has had a very busy day and the text recaps his activities. At the bottom of the page there is a question "Are you sleepy yet?" and it appears on every tabbed page except the last one. George is a good little monkey and he picks up his toys, takes a bath, and brushes his teeth. Then there is a bedtime story (based on one of George's earlier adventures) and a little game of peek-a-boo. The Man in the Yellow Hat sings a lullaby and wishes his friend sweet dreams. The extra sparkle on the cover and the tabbed pages make this board book a bit more distinctive than most. The real hope is that it will be successful in helping young ones calm down and go to sleep.

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.
