Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Margret and H. A. Rey's character, Curious George returns in a "Look and Find" book written by Platt. The endpapers show an overview of the different locations to search for Curious George. Some of the places include a cutaway view of a cabin, trailer, and boat. Due to its height, the lighthouse is placed horizontally across the layout. The rhyming text is a invitation to find to the monkey along with other objects in the picture. The hunt for George, a crayon, chair, and other items begins with a tree house featured on a nearly full page spread. Next, look for George in a barn out in the field. Young children may also enjoy naming the other objects in the barn like a lantern, scarecrow, or wheelbarrow. The final location for finding items is George's home. Paprocki's illustrations resemble the style of H. A. Rey. Children may be eager to explore the "Curious George" series by Rey and Rey. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

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.

This is a little difficult for my son, who is 3, but the pictures are very cute, and I am sure he will enjoy it later on. Each page has a small picture of the outside of a structure and a large picture of the inside. There are several items to find in each, including George. The scenes are quite detailed with lots of interesting items.
