Overview

After creating a mess at the local fire station while taking a tour, George is swept along with the firefighters to the scene of a fire. Although he isn't able to help put out the fire, George brings his own set of special monkey talents to the situation and proves that maybe a fire dog shouldn't be the only animal allowed to come along for the ride.

The new English/Spanish edition includes highly readable text.

About the Author

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.

Place of Birth:

Hamburg, Germany; Margret in 1906, and H.A. in 1898

Place of Death:

A cute story that my firefighter loving son enjoyed, but a very poor format. There were numerous times in the short 7 pages that I thought I missed something because the captioned story was not in line with the written pages.

The story is ok but to read the book is tough. The setting of the English words and the Spanish words makes it hard on the eyes. You lose focus of the story when you have to scan for the English words on the page. Unfortunately, this is all throughout the book and I can only give it 2 stars due to the above reason.
