Overview

George is going to a pizza party! He’s so excited. He loves pizza AND parties. Before George leaves for the party, he promises to be on his best monkey behavior. But when he gets to the party and sees all of that pizza dough, George has an idea...a big idea that lands him in big trouble! A recipe for healthy veggie mini-pizzas is included.

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.

Meet the Author

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.

Of coaorse any Curious George book is great and the Story deserves 5 stars but this book did not seen to be formated for the nook and the pictures were very small almost like a tiny photocopy of the page of the book.

(Sorry for longg delay. I was trying remember where this story was located.) <p> I gasped. Rosebud was flying upward. I used my magic to battle him. I thought," i thought he brought his servents. It is not. Only himself. Rosebud and I took out the sparkly rocks and start the apinnung around us. Dark Khinght laughed,"What is this?" I said,"Nighttime is over for you, Dark Knight." He laughed hard. we getting serious, tense and I annouced,"Final warning." Dark Knight continued to laugh, irgoned me. Rosebud and I stared each other as the rocks turned pink and white orbs. I jpined horns with my sister. Dark Knight was defeated at all. Luna grumbled and She turned the nightmare moon. She screamed,"You are so "bleep" sisters!" I winced as she cursed. Rosebud said,"Okay then." I stared at her, knowing hat it meant. <br> Better luck on jext time!
