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. Visit www.curiousgeorge.com.

This book is AMAZING! My little guy (seventeen months old) loves this book so much. Loves it so much that he made me read it to him three times last night. Through this book your child can touch the animals described and it's so much fun. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is 12+ months.

This book is OK, but I was somewhat disappointed after purchasing because it does not live up to the Curious George books that I read as a child. The book does not hold the attention of my five-month old son, who is very attentive to most other books, and he was not impressed with the touch-and-feel aspects. It just was not worth the money, so I would suggest purchasing one of the "old school" Curious George books instead.
