“This is George. He lived in Africa. He was a good little monkey, and always very curious.” With these words, H. A. and Margret Rey introduced the world to Curious George in 1941, and the world has loved him ever since.
In this collection of George’s best-loved adventures, fans young and old can follow along as he is captured by the Man with the Yellow Hat, who brings him to a zoo in the big city—and eventually, takes him home to live at his house and helps him out of a few sticky situations.
With an introduction by critic Leonard Marcus, a retrospective note by publisher Anita Silvey, and a cataloged history of the Reys by curator Dee Jones, this volume includes:
Curious George Takes a Job
Curious George Rides a Bike
Curious George Gets a Medal
Curious George Flies a Kite
Curious George Learns the Alphabet
Curious George Goes to the Hospital
George is tired of following the house rules—he wants a place of his own where he can draw on the walls and eat corn on the cob with his feet! So he decides to build a tree house in the yard, but quickly learns that creating a house from scratch just might take more than a pile of plywood and a handful of nails. What he needs is a design plan to make it work!
This Green Light Reader based on Curious George, the Emmy Award-winning PBS TV show now streaming on Peacock, also includes bonus activities to help build on the construction theme with a matching materials game and a make-your-own sponge blocks craft.

When George bites into a shiny apple made of wax, his tooth begins to hurt. The next morning George shows his wiggly tooth to the man with the yellow hat, who takes him to the dentist. George is nervous about his first visit to the dentist, but overcomes his fear and learns about better dental hygiene—with a little good-natured mayhem on the side!
With art in the style of H. A. Rey, this engaging story will teach young readers that there is nothing scary about the dentist or wobbly teeth—and adds some tooth fairy fun for good measure!
When George gets a letter from the mailman, he’s definitely excited about it—but monkeys can’t read! He decides to write a reply but winds up spilling ink all over the floor. Trying to clean it up puts him in bubbles of trouble—and that’s not the least of his worries. It takes a series of misadventures for George to discover that the letter came from a scientist who wants George to become the first monkey in space—and he’s just curious enough to do it!
With the help of his friend, the man with the yellow hat, George learns to count from 1 to 100, making his usual monkey mischief along the way. Young minds (and little fingers) will find all kinds of wonderful things to count as they turn each colorful page.
In this large format, paper-over-board book each page features familiar objects for children to count. From home (toys, shoes, plates) to the park (bugs, sticks, clouds) to school (paste, crayons, books) George finds many different things to count. A perfect book for celebrating counting, numbers and the 100th day of school.
Containing star charts, a guide to the constellations, and details about seasons and the movement of the objects we see in the sky, this classic book makes H. A. Rey’s passion for astronomy evident on every page.
New updates concentrate on the planetary and solar system information in the latter part of the book. Facts and figures for each planet have been revised, and new scientific information has been added, such as Pluto’s reclassification as a dwarf planet. There's also a brand-new online resource that allows readers to track the positions of the planets in the night sky till the year 2100.
“An excellent introduction to the heavens, to satisfy and stimulate a child’s interest…a very useful book.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Persuades the reader that astronomy is not only easy—it’s fun.”—The New York Times
