This is George.

He was a good monkey and always very curious.

Today George and the man with the yellow hat were visiting the aquarium.

"George," said the man, "please wait here while I buy the tickets."

George tried to wait, but he was so excited! What was inside?

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. Visit www.curiousgeorge.com.

No matter what age of the reader, no matter what time of day, a Curious George adventure is one to share aloud or read and reread alone. The illustrations are simple and colorful and the lessons taught are always positive. The story can be read on many different levels. I highly recommend this book for total family enjoyment.

It is the "original" pages scanned in but you cant read the original text so they just added and additional copy of the text which means the pictures are not as big as they could be...very disappointed!!

I was disappointed by this book. I guess I maybe didn't read something somewhere, because it was not a true eBook. It was more like pictures of the pages with a larger font restating the words on the page so you could read them. It didn't fill the screen like most eBooks do. You can barely see what's going on in the pictures on the page.

What can I say? Curious George is a well loved family classic that has been around for years. It is no surprise to me that two year old loves these books and it's iconic main character. I very often see some of my son in the characteristics of that mischievous monkey. We enjoyed seeing what trouble he could get into at the aquarium.

This story is about an enjoyable adventure at the aquarium. We learned a good lesson about not putting your fingers in the animal's tanks, thanks to George. And, we spend time jumping and waddling like the penguins too. My son is just turning two and has really enjoyed all of the Curious George books for at least the last 6 months. He likes to act out the stories and pretend to be George, and he always remembers the lessons - like Do Not Touch the crab's tank.
