A Curious George Sampler: Timeless Pleasure
Thanks to the folks in the children's
Division at Houghton Mifflin and authors Margret and H.A. Rey who
brought Curious George to life more than half a century ago - there
is an entire range of these wondrous books available for boys and
girls all over the world.
There is "Curious George Goes to a Costume Party," "Curious George
Takes a Train," "Curious George at the Parade," and my favorite
"Curious George at the Baseball Game."
All priced at below $13.00 each, all illustrated and written in the
style of authors Margret and H.A. Rey - Curious George lives on as
an endearing children's classic brand. If you are looking for a gift
for a child or a grand child - go for "Curious George."
MOST NOTABLE: "Red is Best" story by Kathy Stinson, art by Robin
Baird Lewis, Annick Press Ltd, is about a willful little girl (as so
many of them are). Delightful, highly appealing.
