Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Seven double-page spreads with a tab for each one introduces young children to various aspects of Halloween. First there is the pumpkin picking, then decorating, followed by costume selection, a game of "boo," trick or treating, a party, and finally, bedtime where the events of the day are recounted. Curious George is central to each of these events, whether he is climbing a spider web or hanging from a chandelier, and his personality remains true to character. Each "story" is actually a rhyming verse. The rhythm and sound are appropriate for a preschool audience. There is no real story line here, but this serves as an ordinary introduction to Halloween traditions. The illustrations are in the style of H. A. Rey. Strong character identification will make this book popular. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo

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.

We bought this book for our two year old granddaughter. she is frightened of most things concerning halloween. She loves this book! She crawls up in our laps and wants to read it almost everyday. I recommend this book as a fun way to look at halloween with little ones. Curious George is always a beloved character and this just continues the smiles.

I wanted this for my 2 year old granddaughter. I was disappointed when I found it did not read, she really enjoys the books that read to her.

This book is good, like all of the George books but we were disappointed with the illustrations that were presented for the Nook Color. Format is too small for the screen, it is hard to keep a kids attention when the illustrations are so small.

This book is cute. It's a rhyming story so it's a little harder for little ones to understand. Good story!

Curious George is always a great choice for kids. My 3 yr old grandson loves George and this book helps kids discover all the different aspects of the season, from different types of costumes, parties, pumpkins, symbols like witches and ghosts and even treats and mischief.
