About the Author
Emmy Payne comes from a family of published authors and began writing her own stories as a young child. She has also written more than twenty mystery books in collaboration with her mother, Christine Noble Govan.
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.

I bought these books for my 3 yr old grand daughter-- she LOVES to read books (have them read to her) and this was one that my daughter-in-law requested for her-------
This is one of my favorite all time children's books. I loved it as a child, love it as an adult, and my first grade students loved it as well.
If I could afford it, I would give this book to all my friends with kids. This book is darling - the absolute best. We love it. The illustrations are gorgeous. The story has true depth and is so sweet and meaningful. A real classic. A gem!
