About the Author
Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.
Place of Birth:Hamburg, Germany; Margret in 1906, and H.A. in 1898
Place of Death:Cambridge, Massachusetts; Margret died in 1996, H.A. in 1977

We have the storybook with all the stories rather than the boxed set. Our daughter just turned five and has had this book a year or two now. Our son who isn't even 2 yet enjoys the Curious George stories already. Educational, but the series always has us laughing and giggling. Great for when we go out and could use reading material as it has several stories in one book.
I am son loves the tv show now has cool books based on the TV. This is a cool box set and great for kids learning to read b
