Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Everyone's favorite, loveable monkey is back in one of his most exciting adventures yet. In this story, George cannot wait until the new toy store opens, but, of course, when he gets there, his playful ways cause big trouble for the store owner. It isn't long, however, before George is helping the customers in a way that only he can. The illustrations in this book are just as delightful and detailed as they have been for years. No matter what age the readers are, they will still enjoy seeing what mischief George will get himself into next. This story greatly contributes to the classic love that we all have for Curious George and his pal, The Man With the Yellow Hat. 2002, Houghton Mifflin Co.,

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.

Martha Weston was the author and illustrator of two charming picture books about Tuck, as well as the illustrator of Clarion's successful Owen Foote books by Stephanie Greene. Martha Weston died in 2003.

Looks like someone copied the book with a scanner. :( Graphics are cut up between pages. Hard to read. I downloaded this the 1st day I had my Nook because my son LOVES Curious George. So disappointed.
