About 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.

Downloaded this to my nook color and was very disappointed. The pictures are small with very small print below them, which you can not zoom in on and can not read as is. At the bottom of most pages, the micro print has been repeated in a font size that can be read.

Love the book as I do all Curious George books however, l am disappointed as this is not a nook book. It's scanned in from the print format and is very blurry and hard to read.
