More About 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.

Curious George Jul 6, 2007
Both my boys love curious george. And you can never go wrong with a book.
not good May 22, 2007
My daughter got tired of this book while reading it. If you're looking for a book about a chocolate factory, then this is it. If however you're looking for a fun book about a mischievous monkey, then this is not it.
Great Classic Gift Apr 11, 2007
My 5 year old daughter just loves Curious George. Ever since the new movie came out she has been hooked on the older adventures of George. She is easily able to listen to the tape on her personal tape player and read along with the book. With the tapes I don't have to worry about her scratching them or ruining them after just a few uses. I would recommend this to anyone considering it for their child.
My Favorite Curious George Book Thus Far Jul 20, 2006
Written in the spirit of the classic books by Margaret and H.A. Rey, Curious George Goes to a Chocolate Factory features the clean, simple illustrations of Vipah Interactive. (Other George stories are written/illustrated by Mary Weston, who gets enthusiastic with the black charcoal--resulting in dirty looking illustrations.)
One day, the man with the yellow hat and George go to tour a chocolate factory. George is enthralled to learn that there is a special coding system used to indicate various types of chocolate or fillings. For example, the chocolate with a squiggle is a truffle, the one with a little swirl on top is fudge, and the one with the N on it is for nougat.
In a scene reminiscent of the classic I Love Lucy episode, George accidentally turns a machine on "very fast"--sending chocolates speeding down a conveyor belt. He then helps the workers box up the chocolates (eating while he works!), and ends up saving the day.
George doesn't even accept a box of chocolates as a reward--because he has a tummy ache!
This delightful book also has a neat game on the back, with the different chocolates as game squares. All you need is two coins to play the simple game--three if you're playing with a friend.
Maybe it's because I'm a chocolate lover, but this is my favorite Curious George book! My son seems to love it, too.
I am a happy customer Mar 20, 2006
My kids, boys 5 and 8 both love the book on tape and have listened to it several times. But really, can you go wrong with Curious George? I am a happy customer
