Martha Says It with Flowersby Susan Meddaugh
Synopses & Reviews
Martha always seems to do the wrong thing around Grandma Lucille, like saying the wrong thing at the wrong time or treading on her favorite hat! To prove that she really is a considerate dog, Martha decides to find something extra special for Grandma's birthday. But choosing the right gift for a human is a lot harder than it looks, especially when Martha's idea of the perfect present is a wormy apple or slab of bacon! In the end, Martha learns that thoughtfulness and perserverance count for far more than any gift could.
The zoo is the perfect place for a curious little monkey to make mischief and new friends! George is going to visit a new kind of zoo where the animals all roam free. Some of those animals look like a lot of funand#8212;so much fun that a curious monkey canand#8217;t resist joining them. Giraffes and flamingos are close enough to touch, but George befriends a baby rhino who seems a little sad. Who better to lure her from her hiding place than George? And just in time for her special birthday party!
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 cityand#39;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.
