Criticas
PreS-Gr 3-Regardless of their country of origin, Spanish speakers of all generations have gotten to know George, and this latest book has all the traditional elements. The curious monkey sneaks the zookeeper's keys, and as he escapes to the city the adventure begins. While others search frantically for him, George goes to a restaurant kitchen because he is hungry and gets wrapped up in yards of spaghetti; in exchange, he does all the dishes. George is a speedy dishwasher and dryer, having four hands to use, and this fact lands him a job as a window washer on a fancy skyscraper. Everything goes fine until George gets curious and climbs into one of the windows where painters are working. While they are away, George cannot resist painting scenic palm trees on the walls and turning the draped furniture into jungle animals. When the workers return, a chase to capture George lands the chimp in the hospital with a broken foot. Of course, the story would not be complete without the man in the big yellow hat coming after Curious George. The pictures are in the basic, bold-colored, old-fashioned '50s style. The exaggerated antics and expressions will appeal to the latest generation, just as they have to generations past. This book is a must for classic picture-book collectors.

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.
