Overview

The Man with the Yellow Hat brings home a birthday present for a friend, and in an effort to distract George and prevent him from opening the gift, the man gives George an orange to “unwrap.” The curious monkey discovers that there are many other things to unwrap besides presents (like the bathroom walls with their peeling wallpaper!), but maybe not all of them can be rewrapped.
Full-color activities: a matching and twenty questions game, a birthday idea space, and a think-more-about-it section.

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.
