More About H. A. Rey, Victor Zeines, Stephen Mackenna, William Shakespeare, Joe Bevilacqua, Steve West, Eric Kingson & Kevin Nowlan

H. A. Rey 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.

H. A. Rey was born in 1898 and died in 1977.

Still Curious After All These Years  May 18, 2008
My young daughter recently received a copy of Curious George for 3rd birthday, and we have been reading at least once a day ever since. Of course, George is a monkey, but he is also an allegory for all children everywhere. My daughter clearly sees herself in George (as do I!). At the page where George is playing with the telephone and accidentally calls the fire department, she said, "See Mommy, you told me not to do that." When George gets into trouble, this book conveys age-appropriate lessons about actions and consequences. Every child in the world gets into trouble every now and then, because of their innocence and curiosity. But mom and dad will always be there to help them out, and THAT is the message of this book.

This is another classic that I am thrilled to be passing on to my child. It is beautifully illustrated with bright colors and attractive drawings. We laugh with George, and discuss his consequences. She knows that it a story. My little monkey just loves Curious George, and I am certain that yours will, too.
 
A classic  May 16, 2008
The only reason for my writing this review is to add another "5" to counter the ridiculous "1" ratings for this classic among classics. My children love the book and find none of it disturbing. I haven't caught my two-year-old trying to light up a smoke before bed yet.
 
It is no longer for today's kids  Apr 26, 2008
I got this for my son and it had been so long since I read any of those books I forgot how I hated the original story. Fist George is kidnapped and then he is arrested and then for the "happy ending" he is put in a zoo!! THEN I remembered why I was not more a fan of Curious George as a kid. I like my son's books to be fun and full of imagination not trauma and woe. Needless to say my son also hates that book, but loves the other books in that series and loves all of the newer and updated to today's standards and the new movie and PBS show. I know it is a classic, but to me a classic is still great many years down the road, so to me it is not a true classic.
 
Great classic that DESERVES 5 stars only!  Apr 20, 2008
I purchased this book for my little girl because I had enjoyed this book when I was a child. Unlike other reviewers who were traumatized by the story as adults, as a child I thought it was normal that an animal was captured from the wild to be put in the zoo. How else would they get there? (The stork?) Also, when Curious George went to jail for misbehaving, it gives a lesson that there is a consequence for bad behavior. There were some adult reviewers enraged by that. It's not like Curious George was imprisoned among criminals for years and walked out as an old monkey who could not find work. He escaped right away and then got into more mischief to our delight. This a a beautifully illustrated and fun story that should be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
 
Curiously Inconsiderate  Mar 2, 2008
I didn't read that many Curious George books when I was a kid but I was very familiar with them. When my 2 year old fell madly in love with the Curious George cartoons on PBS I decided getting her a book was a great idea. I decided to get the original book of the series.

Here's what is somewhat shocking...George is abducted from Africa by the Man In The Yellow Hat and no reason is given for why the man kidnaps him. George is tied up in a bag with a rope around his neck and is taken on a boat to a larger boat. He gets into trouble, almost drowns, gets thrown in jail, etc.

I was very disturbed by the images of George's abduction from Africa but I continued to read the story to my daughter who loves George. However, when a good friend from Cameroon was reading her the book she pulled me aside to explain to me that the story of George's abduction and subsequent trip to the boat was completely disturbing to her due to the similarities to the way Africans were abducted and forced into slavery. She found the book terribly disturbing.

It's obvious that this country has gone pretty Politically Correct nutso but you have to respect the history of this book. I may not agree with the story or imagery but altering it or censoring it would be a huge and dangerous mistake. That is not my intention or wish. Also, I very highly doubt the Reys were pro-slavery or racists cause they had problems of their own escaping from the Nazis in Europe with this manuscript and very little else to their names. However, I'd feel remiss if I did not mention that some of the images in this book and the story of how George was taken from Africa can conjure up a disturbing correlation to the slave trade in Africa.

Now we read our daughter another Curious George book instead.
