Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
George and the man with the yellow hat go to the park for Easter festivities. As always, George's charm and curiosity liven things up: he experiments with mixing colors while dyeing eggs and even juggles them. Though he's initially confused about hiding eggs, when the “Easter Bunny” (a little, white rabbit) escapes, George saves the day. Fans will appreciate that Young's artwork hews to Rey's original illustrations; a page of sparkling stickers adds an interactive element. Ages 3–7. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
George and the man with the yellow hat drive to the park. It is Easter and children are flying kites, decorating eggs, and rolling eggs in races. George feeds a white bunny a carrot. When George goes to dye eggs, the bunny runs away. George mixes colors to make new ones and even juggles the dyed eggs. When he sees a man hiding eggs, George thinks the man is losing them and collects all the eggs. When he sees a white egg, it turns out to be the bunny's tail. The man in the yellow hat has George re-hide the eggs so the children can find them. "It was the best egg hunt ever!" The pictures show George hiding eggs in a bird nest, in a boy's pocket, and a squirrel hole. At the back are sparkly egg-decorating stickers. The pictures are in the style of H.A. Rey, the original creator of Curious George. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman

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 studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then 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 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.

Love that book.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is a wonderful book for children. I am and Nanny and friend who takes care of two children, 6 years old an 5 years old. Their mom wants them to read to me daily. Each picks a book and reads before/after dinner. I bought this for Jack and Matthew towards an Easter gift. Curious George is a delightful character and the children enjoyed the book very much. Jack picked the book a few days ago to read again. It is very colorful and shows what children do at Easter time.
