Overview

George and the man with the yellow hat enjoy watching the winter sports competition. When they stop to warm up with some cocoa, George's curiosity about the racing equipment leads to some wild rides up and down the slopes. He creates quite a stir at the resort, and may even create a new sport!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Candice Ransom
Curious George has entered the world of merchandising—bedding, birthday cards, backpacks, and baby rompers. New titles of Curious George in the style of Margret and H.A. Rey have been issued since 1998 to keep the character license healthy. The books have the same cheerful yellow, blue, and red palette. George is still curious; the man still wears a yellow hat. The series of "New Adventures" are twenty-four-page picture books. The original Curious George books are lengthy (forty-eight to eighty pages) early readers. Despite the branding, Curious George in the Snow manages to capture the flavor of both the illustrations and the stories of the originals. George and the man in the yellow hat visit a ski resort. George cannot resist hopping in a toboggan, slaloming on a broken ski, and whizzing down the slope in a pizza pan. His curiosity gets him in trouble, as always, but he inadvertently helps the owner of the broken ski to win the big race. For fans not yet ready to tackle the early readers, the "New Adventures of Curious George" bridge the gap nicely. Reviewer: Candice Ransom

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.
