Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Combine a classic, loveable character from Margaret and H.A. Ray like Curious George with math and measuring skills, update him to match the PBS kids teleplays, and you have a winner. Young children familiar with the Curious George character in this story (part of the “Curious George adventures” series) will be drawn to read about his latest adventure. This author has done a good job of adapting the basic character while integrating math concepts and activities (via an “after reading” section at the book’s end). The typical Curious George theme--mischievous monkey is curious, tries to solve problem, gets in trouble, and, finally, is saved by friendship and kind deeds in the end--shines through. The familiar bright hue from the “man’s yellow hat” highlights each page’s text and adds visual continuity to the story. It is noteworthy that the text is somewhat more difficult than a young reader could handle independently (a third grade reading level according to the Fleish Kincaid readability index) but it certainly seems a possibility for a shared or paired read aloud.

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.
