About the Author

Louise Borden is the highly regarded author of many books, including Good Luck, Mrs. K!, Sleds on Boston Common, Good-bye, Charles Lindbergh and The Little Ships: The Heroic Rescue at Dunkirk in WW II--all published by Margaret McElderry Books. Across the Blue Pacific is based on the true story of her uncle, Theodore Taylor Walker, who served aboard the USS Albacore (SS-218) during World War II. She lives with her husband, Pete, in Terrace Park, Ohio, and has three grown children. Her website can be found at www.louiseborden.com.


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. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. 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? The manuscript of 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. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. 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.

As a child this was one of my favorite characters; luckily I can now share with my grandchildren. This is a great illustrated book.

It is a pity this book has been rewritten as Cecily G. The original of "Raffy and the 9 monkeys" was much better.

This is the book that came before the Curious George series and one of the 9 monkeys is George. H.A.'s publisher suggested that his next book focus on George and rest is history! The story is a little crazy and not as good as the later 7 CG books but because it has George in it, it is worth buying...especially if you love "all things George"!

I remember this book so well from my own childhood and was pleased to see it still in print so I could buy it for my grandchildren.

I was excited when I saw this book. The Curious George books were some of my favorites as a child, and even now. My husband I bought this book for our daughter. The pictures are gorgeously illustrated with vibrant colors as expected from HA Rey. However, the story of Cecily G upset my husband and myself. The poor giraffe almost seemed to be tortured by the 9 monkeys. I don't know. We felt uncomfortable when reading it for the first time to our daughter. Wish we would have read it beforehand.
