Curious George Takes a Jobby Hans Augusto Rey
Synopses & Reviews
After escaping from the zoo, Curious George tries his hand at a number of jobs. As usual, his curiousity gets him into and out of trouble, and in the end he winds up a star.

When George escapes from the zoo, he heads out into the city, where he is in for a wide world of adventures—and where a spot of trouble leads to a joyful reunion with his friend, the man with the yellow hat.

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.
