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.

Good content, I bought it without reading the reviews because my son loves Curious George and we were at the beach, but a really poor conversion on the Nook Color. The art takes up only the top part of the screen in portrait only, and the original text is faint, so there is readable text repeated.

At the beach George has fun but also does two good deeds. A great installment of this series.

I bought this book for my two year old son because we are taking him to the beach for the first time!! He loves all of the other Curious George books that we've read. This one is no exception. We've been able to use it as a teaching tool to tell our son what to expect when visiting the beach. As with all of the books in this series, the bright colors and humourous antics of George make us laugh every time we read the book. Each time we read it, we talk about something else in the imagery. Doing this has helped us to increase our son's vocabulary. What can I say, I'm a fan of all of the Curious George books. This one is an excellent addition to our library.
