Book Description

Curious George Goes Camping is an entertaining story of the Great Outdoors based on H. A. and Margret Rey’s popular primate and painted in the original watercolor and charcoal style. George tries to be helpful, but he of course just ends up upsetting a nearby camper. As he’s hiding in the woods, he meets a forest creature who catapults the mischievous monkey into a chain of even more outrageous events!

Product Description

About 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.

This was a great little book to read on the go. I bought it for a train journey as my son is familiar with the cartoon and he loved it too. It was finished too soon and I need to get some more!

1.0 out of 5 stars illegible type 2 Jan. 2011
By Amanda J - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I should have read the other reviews for the other Curious George kindle books. the type is illegible. Below the illegible type from the book, they have the text typed out. The pages repeat -- there are sometimes multiple pages from the book on one page in the ipad, and then each page is repeated again since the type is too small and blurry to read it the way they have scanned the book in -- and then the text is actually typed out on a page that does not match the picture. It's confusing. I want my 87 cents back.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 ½ Georgie Dans Le Forest 22 Jun. 2004
By M. Allen Greenbaum - Published on
When the now iconic Man in the Big Yellow Hat warns Curious George,"now don't wander off and get into trouble," we know exactly what's about to happen instead (especially since he had already rushed off). Despite his good intentions, George adventures turn into misadventures: Dousing someone's campfire, getting lost with a galloping deer, and being sprayed by a skunk that George thought was a cat. As usual in these series (story by Margret Rey, with illustrations by a team in the style of the late H.A. Rey), George's curiosity also leads to some monkey heroics. He also learns how to get rid of skunk smell (a vat of tomato juice).

Given its forest setting, this is a somewhat quieter `George book,' but there are soft forest and animal drawings and enough action for the small ones. Curious George is now "a registered trademark of the Houghton Mifflin," but the company encourages young readers to look for the `original adventures about Curious George' by the Reys. 24 pages, with pencil and watercolor illustrations on each one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality 13 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
My children are big fans of curious George stories. So, I tried the Kindle edition... This is theft! The book is scanned and the text is typed again. So you end up with small pictures, twice the text (once small and difficult to read, once adapted to the kindle) and a very bad experience. There are some curious George that are "real" ebooks, so you have to check before buying.

My daughters (3 and 5) love Curious George. We have many of the books in this series and this one is currently the favorite. We've been reading it every night for weeks. Cute story about an adorable little monkey. I never get tired of George.
