About the Author
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.

George is so excited about the new squishy rug that he forgets he is holding a cup of grape juice and while jumping the juice spills onto the rug. He does everything he can to clean that juice spill, even bringing the garden hose into the house to clean up.Funny story about a curious monkey how always gets into some mess, but figures a way to get himself out.
This book does not stray far from the Curious George we all know and love. The text is simple and to the point. My 2 1/2 year old quickly learned the lesson taught in the book and the length was perfect. Worth the effort but not tiresome.
