Overview

This 24-page, 8 x 8, paperback adaptation of the straight-to-DVD movie, Curious George: Follow That Monkey!, chronicles George's adventures as he befriends Kayla, a baby elephant, at a magic circus show and helps her travel across the country to be reunited with her family. Accompanied by his friend, the man with the yellow hat, George travels by foot, train, and truck to reach Kayla's brother and sister in California, only to be accused of elephant-napping and returned to New York City. Luckily, Kayla's owner sees what a good friend George is and realizes how much Kayla misses her family. Kayla's brother and sister are brought to the circus in New York, resulting in a happily permanent elephant reunion.  A pull-out movie poster is included.

Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for 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. 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.
