Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Curious George This book is filled with colorful illustrations of George moving from one activity to the next. It shows a mischevious little monkey in a humorous and delightful light. My little one absolutely adores this book at age two. She has me read it over and over and no matter how many other books we have she always goes back to this one.

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. The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be, Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father?s home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister.

Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys? home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including SPOTTY, PRETZEL, and lift-the-flap books such as HOW DO YOU GET THERE?
