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.
It's a curious George Book, my kid loves it. A bit disappointed it's a modern one and not an original, but my little girl doesn't know that.Published 3 months ago by beththatreads
This is one of my son's favorite books. We have read it countless times and it conveys a really nice message. It was a great addition to his library.Published 8 months ago by Karla W Pekor
