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. www.curiousgeorge.com.

I can''t believe only one other reviewer had an issue with the content of these books. George (in these books) is a terrible role model. I gave these to my daughter for her second birthday and that''s all she wanted to read for 2 months, she LOVES them. However, every story is exactly the same with George: he does bad things even after being warned not to, gets in trouble or severely hurt, sometimes feels a little bad, but by the end of the story everyone forgives him and it''s all been for laughs and George is a hero even though he hasn''t learned a single lesson nor done anything significant to make up for his mistakes. The books got taken away when my daughter starting using "I''m a curious monkey" to justify her bad behavior- including swallowing some non-food items just like George does when he swallows a puzzle piece (for which George subsequently needs surgery, a consequence that doesn''t sink in very far since George just becomes the hero of the children''s ward at the hospital and has a lot of fun there). From George getting high on ether, to repeatedly calling a nurse "pretty" or a fisherman "fat", to how George was tricked and captured in the first place (and how his kidnapping made him a little sad, but still curious enough to be ok with it), I just can''t let these be shaping my child''s perception of what is acceptable.

Delivery was reasonable and they are good quality hard back books. Sadly the dated content means that for some books you have to edit as you read ("pretty young nurse") while others have such awful content that they just should not be used: for example in the first story, Curious George, the main character is tricked into coming down from his African tree home and subsequently snatched into a sack so that he can be transported to the US by his smiling, laughing captors. On multiple pages this book also shows adults and the main character (a child-like monkey) smoking! George is also shown in prison and escaping by outwitting a fat-shamed guard.
Completely inappropriate!

Can you believe what they allow children to read these days?

This presumptuous man in a banana suit tricks a poor monkey and steals him from his home country, forcing him to live a life of captivity at a zoo! What''s more, when they refuse to take him in, the banana man takes him home without any indication he has the expertise or the infrastructure to care for a wild primate. He lets the monkey play with puzzle pieces and nearly gets him killed!

One time, I read that this man--whom the monkey is duped into believing is his "friend"--leaves him outside his house with a bicycle, and the creature nearly gets kidnapped by strange men in a truck who are clearly grooming him for nefarious purposes. And when the banana man finally shows up, he has the gall to say he was "very concerned" about this monkey. Well, why in the world would this oatmeal-brained monkey-snatcher be coming to a circus if he was so concerned for his little "friend?" What sort of friend does that? I''d like to know!

Furthermore, at the end of the day, there is never a single indication of the consequences of this rabble-rousing monkey''s actions. He nearly lost a farmer his entire herd of pigs, stole his water pump, hijacked his cow, and filled the banana man''s apartment with water, likely causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages both to his apartment and the one below! Then they send the monkey up in a ship and (with a kind of psychotic cruelty I shall never comprehend) expect him to understand how to get out before he burns up in the atmosphere. Yet at the end of all, the whole town comes clapping and fawning over him and award him a medal. What sort of lessons are these books teaching our children?

This is why our society is falling apart. These books have singlehandedly brought about the destruction of the American ideal.

Decent artwork.

They were all okay. 100% okay. I know my nephew will love these books as much I as I love my set. And, might I just say, that, here is the only place where I could find all of the original Curious George books without any of the newer ones thrown in or with any missing. GREAT!

My son LOVES Curious George and we have a ton of CG books. Just know what you are getting with the classic ones. As others have mentioned, George smokes a pipe, drinks chemicals in a hospital and passes out, goes to prison for a phone call, a lot of people are called fat, etc. I have had to heavily edit as I am reading and am now going to get rid of most of them as he''s getting older. The newer CG books are much better for young kids. (Not to mention shorter. These classics are long for a bedtime story! 😆)

I LOVE IT! These books remind me of my childhood love for CG, and they are absolutely FABULOUS quality, and easily almost EXACTLY like the original printings (hard to tell the difference. The price is a steal! I bought The Hungry Caterpillar (for over $10!), and it''s barely the size of half of one CG book, which cost barely twice as much, and contains SIX, REAL SIZE books in an awesome casing.
I bought these for my beautiful granddaughter, and she loves me reading these stories to her.
Again...if u loved the original books....THIS IS A STEAL!

This product is amazing. I bought it to replace my copies of the original four books (printed in 1975!). I was skeptical at the price (6 hardcover books for $40), but it''s true. A small note that doesn''t bother me in the least: They changed the wording ever so slightly, mostly for grammar (colon use for the win!). But on the first page, it used to say, "George has one fault. He was too curious." Now it says, "He was a good little monkey and always very curious." But I have a feeling that change was made a while ago.

The content of these books clearly hasn''t been updated to latest standards of morality. George is being kidnapped from jungle in a sack, abused by different people, made to work at dangerous places. People and George himself are smoking cigars and pipes. Kids remember these kinda things and will try some of them when they grow up. Disappointed.
