The majority of the stories are formulaic Curious George adventures, but the last is a bizarre dream that George has where he becomes a giant Monkey. The story is surreal, melancholy, and slightly chilling.

The third collection of Curious George stories that I got for my son, who was quite addicted to the Curious George books for a while there, is this one, The New Adventures of Curious George. I'm quite glad he no longer wants to read them constantly, as they are hard to read as an adult - I don't mean that they're difficult stories, but that the way they're written really makes you sleepy. Kids love these stories, and they teach them a lot, but unlike so many other picture books or stories, Curio ...more

This is a collection of 8 stories:

C.G. Goes To a Chocolate Factory
C.G. and the Puppies
C.G. Makes Pancakes
C.G. Feeds the Animals
C.G> Goes to a Movie
C.G. and the Hot Air Balloon
C.G. in the Snow
C.G.'s Dream

It must be said that one of the things Squirt enjoys about this is looking at the pictures of each book cover that is shown on the back of this collection, and choosing which one he wants to hear. In fact, the first thing he does for any book is look at the back cover for pi
This is our second collection of Curious George's "new" adventures. Once again, I'm not really clear on who wrote these, but they are in the style/spirit of the original adventures by Margret and H.A. Rey. As to be expected, George's curiosity gets him into trouble in a variety of ways, but he is always looking to make things right and help out where he can. Though, really, by now I am wondering why the Man with the Yellow Hat leaves him alone so often because that's when the mischief always sta ...more

In this follow-up anthology to “A Treasury of Curious George,” George “helps” out in a chocolate factory à la Lucille Ball, locates a lost puppy, makes pancakes at a fair, visits the zoo, goes to a movie, rides a hot air balloon, learns to ski, and dreams about life being as big as King Kong. My son can recite the hot air balloon story verbatim. This anthology never fails to delight.

The Hebrew version is called: הרפתקאותיו החדשות של ג'ורג' הסקרן.

A lovely edition of George's many adventures ... visits to a chocolate factory, the movies, and the zoo, just to name a few. Brief biography included, which shares more about the Reys and their collaborative storytelling and illustration efforts that have created classics.

Setting Eliot up for some adventures of his own. Thought of Elise today ... stay curious!

I never tire of this cheeky monkey and his propensity to get in and then out of trouble. I love his sense of adventure and his relationships with the people with whom he intreacts. I love reading with my kids, not just Rey's words, but also George's interpretation of situations through his body language and facial expression.

Enjoyed by my son and I alike. Structurally, all the stories start the same way. Monkey is curious, makes a mistake or makes life harder for someone he is trying to help, everyone is good natured about it. A little diversity would be nice. However, the detail in the illustrations is really great. Bed time favorite.

The tried and true format: george gets into mischief, he creates a dilemma, then he helps solve it and then is declared a hero. I have a slight issue with the message. This is a collection of new Curious George stories. So they are not the original stories but they are good. So far we've read one about pancakes and one about a chocolate factory (generously borrowed from I love Lucy)..

I think these stories and the illustrations that accompany them are adorable. Plus, Maddie is completely engrossed by them. I think I must own this book eventually. Maddie reminds me of Curious George in a lot of ways, which is maybe why she likes the stories so much. She is a very good girl, and always very curious :)

We were given this book as a gift. I really like this particular collection of curious George stories- some of them are really lame, but not these. I really like the pictures and the binding seems very sturdy. My 23-mo-old son loves to get out "George" and then pick a story based on the pictures in the table of contents. He loves hearing these over and over.

The 2 year-old loves the adventures of Curious George. What a silly monkey! We go through two before bedtime most nights and the current favorites are Curious George Makes Pancakes and Curious George at the Movies.

We love George in my house, and my son was so happy with this collection. I loved the lessons it teaches and how they are so clearly indicated to a young mind. I loved the illustrations ad my son was happy that they were just like the ones in his previous George books.

So adorable and heartwarming! Me and my kids, we had so much fun reading this. Curious George has become my kids's favorite now.

It's a pretty good book for babies to read and a little bit good for ages 1-4. Whoever likes Curious George should probably read it and the other curious george book which comes with a CD.

Well, it's a formula that worked. George makes trouble, but the trouble ends up making something good happen. Not exciting, and perhaps not the best moral, but they're good enough.
