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.

The story is good, the characters familiar but frustrating to read with a young one because the download comes in poorly. Pages are repeated as blank text pages after the reader has seen the illustrated page with the text.

I purchased this book for my son and it was so poorly converted to Nook. Duplicated text (every other page) - a page spread appears twice and the format is vertical not horizontal like the other kids nookbooks. Don't waste your money.

I bought this book for my daughter for 99 cents. She not only loves the story, but enjoys trying to make paper airplanes using the instructions included in the back of the book. This book has paid for itself in entertainment value. Plus, who doesn't love Curious George?
