About the Author

Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.

No matter what age of the reader, no matter what time of day, a Curious George adventure is one to share aloud or read and reread alone. The illustrations are simple and colorful and the lessons taught are always positive. The story can be read on many different levels. I highly recommend this book for total family enjoyment.

George and The Man with the Yellow Hat visit an aquarium, where George has lots of opportunities to be curious. While the man is buying tickets, George hears enticing noises and can't restrain himself; he jumps over the wall and starts exploring. He sees whales, piranha, a cranky crab, and eventually scrambles into a penguin enclosure. The workers aren't happy about his being there, but when George opens the door to leave, all the penguins escape instead. Everyone is so busy catching them that they don't notice the baby penguin fall in the water. Good thing George is there! He jumps in and saves the chick that can't yet swim. George is a hero again.The story follows typical Curious George formula: he follows his curiosity, falls into trouble, and performs some good act that makes everyone forget his mistake. This story, though, was wordier than the book about taking a train. The action took too much time to develop. Nonetheless, I do love aquariums, so I appreciated George's desire to wander through all the wonders. Also, my daughter's attention never wavered, and she is a picky critic. Clearly, the story isn't boring, even if it could be more concise. A typical book of the series. If your child likes Curious George, this is an easy choice.

It is the "original" pages scanned in but you cant read the original text so they just added and additional copy of the text which means the pictures are not as big as they could be...very disappointed!!

I was disappointed by this book. I guess I maybe didn't read something somewhere, because it was not a true eBook. It was more like pictures of the pages with a larger font restating the words on the page so you could read them. It didn't fill the screen like most eBooks do. You can barely see what's going on in the pictures on the page.

What can I say? Curious George is a well loved family classic that has been around for years. It is no surprise to me that two year old loves these books and it's iconic main character. I very often see some of my son in the characteristics of that mischievous monkey. We enjoyed seeing what trouble he could get into at the aquarium.

This story is about an enjoyable adventure at the aquarium. We learned a good lesson about not putting your fingers in the animal's tanks, thanks to George. And, we spend time jumping and waddling like the penguins too. My son is just turning two and has really enjoyed all of the Curious George books for at least the last 6 months. He likes to act out the stories and pretend to be George, and he always remembers the lessons - like Do Not Touch the crab's tank.
