Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Based on the TV series teleplay by Chuck Tateley, Curious George wonders why the weather does not always cooperate with his plans. When he wants to go outside to play, it is sometimes too cold or rainy. His friend, the man with the yellow hat, suggests that George draw pictures of the signs that might help him predict the weather. A red sunset often means that the next day will be sunny and pleasant, clouds sometimes bring rain and George learns that there are differences between dark clouds and puffy white clouds. He also learns that wind can make a difference, blowing in storm clouds and that predicting the weather is not an easy job. He is thrilled when he gets to meet the scientists at the weather station and learns that they use satellites to predict the weather. Unfortunately, things are not working and the scientists cannot tell the mayor if the weather will be good for the golf tournament. Of course, George comes to the rescue. It is an interesting lesson about the weather and told with a character who resembles any curious young child. The story is based on the character created by Margaret and H.A. Rey, but the illustrations and story are contemporary including stills from the animated TV series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

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.
