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

Place of Death:

George once again goes on an interfering whimsical adventure. I must confess that when I reread this as an adult, the plot comes across as pretty dumb, though the pictures are cute.

This book was interesting and would be easy to follow for elementary students. It also Teaches children the consequences of being too curious and not following directions that adults give to them. For example, George broke his leg because he did not stick to his job.

Curious George escapes from the zoo and ends up becoming a movie star. Tells kids that with a little ambition, someone can go from here to there.
