Review:

Created by Margret Rey and her husband H.A. Rey, the mischievous monkey Curious George has delighted millions of readers for more than 50 years with his hilarious hijinks. After the birth of Curious George in 1941, six titles completed the series, which have since been translated into 12 languages. This wonderful 416-page collector's edition (with all seven of the original Curious George titles in one colorfully illustrated volume) features Curious George, Curious George Takes a Job, Curious George Rides a Bike, Curious George Gets a Medal, Curious George Flies a Kite, Curious George Learns the Alphabet, and Curious George Goes to the Hospital. The intrepid monkey--who represents the insatiably curious (and invariably accident-prone) soul in all of us-- captures the heart of everyone he meets. (Picture book)

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.
