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.
Curious George Apple Harvest (CGTV 8x8)by H. A. Rey
While helping the Renkinses harvest their apples, George discovers a giant cider press inside the barn! As usual, George’s curiosity gets the best of him, and he accidentally starts the machine. Suddenly all of the apples they’ve collected are being washed, chopped, and squished into liquid! Will George be able to collect the cider and stop the machine, or will he find himself in an even stickier situation?
Young readers are sure to enjoy the “order of sequence” game and special apple snack recipe that are included in the back of the book.
