Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this exciting new Curious George series all about discovery, George gets invited on a submarine trip to help retrieve a satellite that fell from space. He can't wait for his first adventure under the sea! Follow along as George explores the coral reef and discovers the different plants and creatures living near the ocean floor. Based on the Emmy-winning PBS show,and#160;this story is filled to the brim with additional facts, real photos, experiments, activities, and more. Learning about science has never been so much fun!

Review:

"This addition to the First Big series, which introduces wild animals and scientific concepts, focuses on ocean habitats. Large type, crisp photographs of animals in action, informative sidebars and bursts, and interactive prompts all help young readers easily follow along. Each of the four chapters is devoted to one of the world's oceans; a half dozen to a dozen animals are spotlighted within each chapter, including Pacific orcas and the giant oceanic manta ray of the Indian Ocean, among many others. Throughout, the straightforward text underscores the idea of the ocean's diversity: 'There are about 5,000 species of sponges. They come in many shapes, colors, and sizes.' With subjects ranging from perennial favorites like dolphins to critical links along the ocean food chain such as Antarctic krill, Hughes delivers a solid resource to add to a child's learning library. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be, Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her fatherand#8217;s home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reysand#8217; home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including SPOTTY, PRETZEL, and lift-the-flap books such as HOW DO YOU GET THERE? The manuscript of the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and CURIOUS GEORGE was published in 1941. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. CURIOUS GEORGE has been published in many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.
