Overview


Curious George rides many things—a ball, a bicycle, a bus, a helicopter. He even hangs from balloons and kites! But what does Curious George ride when he wants to go home? The little blue car with his friend, the man with the yelllow hat, of course! Margret and H. A. Rey’s art is restored beautifully in this board book made for little hands. Children will love reading about George riding around, and they'll take him riding on their own journeys, too.

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.
