Praise for Curious George
“I suppose it’s only natural that two people who enjoy life so completely, who have the happy faculty of keeping young in spirit, should turn out enchanting books for children—and grownups.”—Lexington Herald Leader, 1947
“Originally published in 1941, it’s a testament to the enduring appeal of Curious George that this title, and its multitude of subsequent books are still widely circulated, and familiar to young readers. I can see why. Kids can relate to George’s innocently mischievous behavior and his relationship with The Man With the Yellow Hat, who acts as parental figure. In a format extended beyond the typical 32 page picture book standard, the simple text and humorous illustrations continue to draw readers in.”—School Library Journal 2012 roundup of Top 100 Picture Books
For the PBS-TV series:
*2010 Daytime Emmy Award

"The 'George' series is nearly perfect preschool literature.”—The New York Times
“An inventive take on an old favorite”—TV Guide
“Wholeheartedly, ironically, nostalgically—whatever adverb you need to feel the love.”—Entertainment Weekly
“This colorful show can’t be anything but successful when the very young target audience finally gets to see its hero show up animated and on the move.”—Hollywood Reporter
“PBS mixes math and mischief in its snappy retelling of CURIOUS GEORGE. . . sweet-natured mayhem.”—Christian Science Monitor
“A nice supportive update on a very old friend.”—The Boston Globe
“Curious George is for kids, which is not to say that it’s not funny, but it’s for kids.”—William H. Macy (narrator), The Pittsburgh Post Gazette
“A delightful educational series.”—Catholic News ServiceBiographie de l'auteur :
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.
