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 studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then 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 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.
Quickly became my child's favorite book. We read from it every day. Highly recommended.Published 19 hours ago by David
Can't go wrong with Curious George. This is a gift for a great nephew. I was surprised at the size of it. It is a pretty good sized book. Lots of stories.Published 9 days ago by Brenda K
This is an excellent addition to my grandchild's library. We enjoy reading these stories to him as much as he seems to enjoy listening to them.Published 11 days ago by ERIC STOLLER
