The ingenious little monkey who left the jungle to live with the man in the yellow hat is at it again. What happens when he sets off on his new bicycle to deliver newspapers is enough to make heads spin. He builds a whole navy of paper boats, lands in a traveling circus as a daring bicycle rider, gets an ostrich into trouble, and rescues a runaway bear.

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

Genre: FictionMedia: Chalk and Charcoal Review: This is a great book of fiction. Not only is Curious George an already well known character, but this particular story is very inventive and it captures you. The situations George gets himself into and so unlikely that it fores you to believe they are true.

A very convoluted story about a bike. Curious George is the ultimate distracted child.

A typical George tale of hilarious (to a two-year old) scrapes and misadventures.

Curious George finds himslef in trouble again, but he saves the day like always!! That monkey could get himself out of a maximum security prison if he tried hard enough and he did enough good deeds!
