About the Author
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. www.curiousgeorge.com.

This is a little difficult for my son, who is 3, but the pictures are very cute, and I am sure he will enjoy it later on. Each page has a small picture of the outside of a structure and a large picture of the inside. There are several items to find in each, including George. The scenes are quite detailed with lots of interesting items.
