Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
Children learn about various modes of transportation with this book's simple question-answer format. Each spread presents a puzzle about how someone will get to a destination. The illustrations depict the dilemma and children are encouraged to guess how someone might accomplish the trip. The right side pages have fold-out flaps that reveal the answers. People travel by some obvious means (boat, horse, airplane) as well as some more interesting choices (submarine, cable car, and camel). The illustrations showcase the author's distinctive style as seen in the popular "Curious George" books.

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 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.
