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

“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
