The book is lovely, even if it has way too much non-story print at the beginning. The CDs are well-read, with animated actors and sounds effects that illustrate to the ear what is happening on the page whether one is reading along or just listening (in the car, for example). Very enjoyable and a steal at the sale price.

The books get five stars - but why the audio CD's? Isn't part of the point that you read these books to your children? I hope that people don't buy into this cheap attempt to make more money off of the Rey legacy - the hardcover complete adventures book is all you would ever need.

Houghton Mifflin Company -
Equal parts innocence and adventure, this "good little monkey" has been essential reading since 1941. This beautiful, deluxe collection reminds us that, as Albert Einstein once said, "curiosity has its own reason for existing."
This handsome gift set includes the top-selling The Complete Adventures of Curious George plus an unabridged audio collection.
Featuring not only all seven original Curious George stories (Curious George, Curious George Flies a Kite, Curious George Gets a Medal, Curious George Goes to the Hospital, Curious George Rides a Bike, Curious George Takes a Job, and Curious George Learns the Alphabet), the special collectors edition also includes a bonus photo album of the Reys, an introduction by Leonard Marcus, and an essay by Dee Jones. The book is packaged with five CDs that include audio recordings of the stories, available with and without turn signals, for three and a half hours of entertainment. CDs are packaged in reusable paper slipcase.
