Overview

With afterword by Louise Borden Now in paperback: The first story to feature Curious George, with a historical afterword by Louise Borden.

"There is originality and a childlike humor in both the amusing antics and engaging pictures.”—Booklist

A lonely giraffe with no playmates meets nine monkeys with no home. Can there be a happy ending? Of course there can—one of the monkeys is Curious George!
This is the first story to feature Curious George, and when you read it, you’ll know why children demanded that Margret and H.A. Rey give him his very own adventures. Enjoy the fun on every page of this playful celebration of imagination and friendship. Louise Borden, author of The Journey that Saved Curious George, has written an afterword placing Cecily G. in historical context vis-a-vis the development of Curious George and the Reys’ personal journey.

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.

Louise Borden is the highly regarded author of many books, including Good Luck, Mrs. K!, Sleds on Boston Common, Good-bye, Charles Lindbergh and The Little Ships: The Heroic Rescue at Dunkirk in WW II--all published by Margaret McElderry Books. Across the Blue Pacific is based on the true story of her uncle, Theodore Taylor Walker, who served aboard the USS Albacore (SS-218) during World War II. She lives with her husband, Pete, in Terrace Park, Ohio, and has three grown children. Her website can be found at louiseborden.com.
