Meet the Author

H. A. and Margret Rey

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.

    My 3-year-old son loves this book. The pictures are colorful and interesting. The story is sweet. I like that it isn't focused on Santa or getting presents.

    We bought this book as a Christmas gift for our grand daughter who is 3 years old. This was her first Curious George and she loved the book. I had remember the Curious George books from when her father was young.

    The book came with a reversible book cover that could be used as wrapping for under the tree. George the monkey tells children by his actions what not to do. He also lets them know that even when actions are naughty the monkey is not a bad monkey, an important lesson to learn.

    Curiously Good, As Always

    Especially if your child is familiar with Curious George, this is a great addition to your Christmas book collection. Also, the hospital featured is touching and provides an opportunity for young readers to remember there are children who are stuck in hospitals for the holidays, Santa or no Santa.
