Chirp! Chirp! Chirp! George looks high and low for the source of the noise in his house—inside the closet, in the tub, under the cushions. Finally, with the help of the man with the yellow hat, George finds the culprit: a friendly cricket that looks as if he’s come to stay!

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 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.
