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.

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.

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!
