about

In 1940, Hans and Margret Rey fled their Paris home as the German army advanced. They made their journey on bicycles with the manuscript that would become Curious George, among their few possessions. Louise Borden collected archival materials to introduce readers to the world of Hans and Margret Rey, and Allan Drummond's dramatic and colorful artwork illustrates their wartime trek to a new home. Part travel journal, part gripping biography, this volume includes an interview with the author, a "Become a Detective" section where readers can learn to be a detective of history, and timeline and map-making activities.
