Meet the Author

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 Gets a Medal By H. A. Rey Curious George Gets a Medal is a great book if you like funny stories. George is a monkey who gets into a lot of trouble. In this story he gets a letter. Nobody ever wrote to him, and he would like to write back. But the floor gets covered with ink! Well, one thing leads to another and George is on his way to a farm to get a pump and dry the room, which is full of water! That¿s where our favorite part happens. That silly monkey can¿t pull the pump and he sets out to find a farm animal to help him. When he comes to the pigsty, he spies a really, really fat pig. But when George opens the gate - all the pigs come out! He wrecked the Dinosaurs at the Museum, too. Can George make up for his bad behavior? Find out! Go to you local library and ask the librarian where you can find Curious George. We loved this book because it was funny and the illustrations were the best! Also, we think that Curious George is a character we can relate to because of his crazy ideas. And 45 years and many books later, he is still cracking up children today. Hope you like the book, Happy Reading! Fellow readers, Rair and Peter
