Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
George is happy to be outside—it is a clear windy day and his neighbor Bill is flying a kite. That looks like something that could really be fun. When Bill has to go because his mother is calling for his help, he turns the kite over to George. This particular kite is too big for George to manage and it takes off with him. Luckily for him, the man in the yellow hat arrives in his hang glider and rescues his pal. The closing pages provide instructions for building paper airplanes (not a kite) and instructions for flying a kite. Since kites are not hard to make, it seems a bit strange that instructions are not given for making one. A Level 1 book that contains simple sentences and concepts.

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.
