Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This special gift edition of the H. A. Rey classic features a real medal with an adorable image of Curious George on one side and his rocket ship on the other. The medal hangs from a breakaway velcro ribbon, allowing for safe and easy use.

In this classic story, George tries to write a letter—but when he spills ink everywhere and he tries to clean up, he instead fills the room with soap bubbles. He also frees a pen full of pigs, rides a cow, hitches a ride on a pickup truck, crashes into a dinosaur, and finally—and most importantly—soars into outer space, which results in the happiest day of his life. He gets a medal, of course!

After repeatedly disastrous efforts to get himself out of trouble, George ends up being the first monkey in space.

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.
