  A Curious George Sampler:  Timeless Pleasure

The Children's Book Review


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.
