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. www.curiousgeorge.com.

My kids both loved this touch and feel board book as toddlers. At 5 and 3, they will still pick this book and read it.
This book is AMAZING! My little guy (seventeen months old) loves this book so much. Loves it so much that he made me read it to him three times last night. Through this book your child can touch the animals described and it's so much fun. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is 12+ months.
This book is OK, but I was somewhat disappointed after purchasing because it does not live up to the Curious George books that I read as a child. The book does not hold the attention of my five-month old son, who is very attentive to most other books, and he was not impressed with the touch-and-feel aspects. It just was not worth the money, so I would suggest purchasing one of the "old school" Curious George books instead.
