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 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 numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
About 5 inches square or so, bought for my nephew, came in really good condition, nice present. I did read it and thought it was appropriate for children.Published 1 month ago by Celeste
Not much to it and maybe a little confusing, even, but VERY adorable and fun. I love the illustrations.Published 1 month ago by Dinah Mattson
My granddaughter is in love with George. She really enjoys this book with her Janod rocket ship.Published 3 months ago by JJB
This small book is very nice. It is an abbreviated version of some of the other Curious George stories.
By small I mean this book is about 5 inches on a side.
Decent, because there aren't many kids books with a space travel theme, but there isn't anything particularly special about this one. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
The story was fine, but the pictures were tiny and the formatting was terrible. It was like it was designed for a phone. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
