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.

Of course, it wasn't listed as such, though it's easy to lose track in the midst of shopping with a toddler on your lap! Great set of stories, great price. But the vertical format - including both images of the pages (including the too-small-to-read text) and the extracted ebook text - means the images are often small and don't always appear on the same screen as their associated text. As I am saying with many of my reviews: B&N, please give us a look at even one inside page of childrens books, to help inform our purchase decision.
