Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Curious George is a TV star and this story is an adaptation of a teleplay by Bruce Akiyama. George is out taking pictures of animal tracks. George's friend Bill points out that the only picture missing is the tracks of a fawn. He offers to show George where to find them and then heads off to the lake for a swim. George sees a snake's slithery path and frog and duck feet which because they are webbed help make them good swimmers. George sees some huge tracks and thinks that maybe they belong to a dinosaur. He creates a trail of food, but gets concerned when he learns that some dinosaurs eat meat. Could our little monkey be in danger? Off he goes back to the lake where the mystery of the tracks is solved and George gets the picture that he wanted. The closing pages offer an exercise to help identify animal tracks and an activity to capture tracks in plaster. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

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.
