Joyce Raskin, Chick Graning, Joe Propatier, of the popular band Scarce, and Matt White provide the original music. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Joyce Raskin says, "Our band has reinterpreted H.

About the Author

H. A. Rey (1898-1977) was born in Germany and emigrated to the U.S. during World War II. He wrote, illustrated, and designed many books for children and adults, including this book of carols, and is perhaps best known as the creator of Curious George.

Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.
