Met where[edit]

One sentence says they met in germany, one sentence says they met in brazil — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.4.254.47 (talk) 23:25, 5 April 2014 (UTC)


Untitled[edit]

The start of this article refers to Curious George as a monkey, and links to the monkey page, but the monkey page itself says that chimps are apes and apes are not correctly called monkeys. Assuming George is a chimp, should the monkey reference be changed?

POVvy formulations[edit]

I think the following is POVvily written, like fetched from the envelop inside of his books, especially since I think Rey's alternative depictions are much inferior to the traditional ones:

Whether they are aware of it or not, millions of amateur astronomers see the constellations through Rey's eyes. Before the 1952 publication of Rey's The Stars: A New Way to See Them, (ISBN 0-395-24830-2) star charts used a conventional set of diagrams that seemed arbitrary, were hard to remember, and relied on dim stars that, regrettably, are hard to see today in populated areas.

This should be rewritten so that "H. A. Rey think" so, not wikipedia. Wikipedia is blatantly neutral in tone and point of view. ... said: Rursus (bork²) 08:51, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Beside that I liked Curious George when I was young. ... said: Rursus (bork²) 09:16, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Since the above has been written, the sentence in question has changed to "Rey invented a new set of constellation diagrams that corresponded to what could be seen from a suburban backyard on an ordinary night." That's better, but it still is not backed up by facts. At least, it certainly is not the case for Perseus, which includes stars such as π Per that far weaker than those in the original constellation, and below what can be seen from a suburban backyard on an ordinary night. I will therefore remove that part and merge the sentence with the next, which currently reads, "He was successful in finding shapes that could really be seen as cartoonish depictions of the creature or character the constellations was supposed to represent", minus the "he was successful" and "really", which are POV and add no factual value. — Sebastian 16:17, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Rey and Christian Morgenstern[edit]

In 1925 was published a book illustrated from Rey: "Christian Morgensterns Grotesken". Greetings. Uwe

Inaccuracies[edit]

The "traditional" diagrams are anything but: they're the modern simplified shapes, nothing to do with the traditional depictions. It's misleading at best to treat them as equivalent to Rey's attempts to depict things. Adam Cuerden (talk) 19:09, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
