Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

George gets a brand-new bicycle for his third anniversary with the man with the yellow hat. He rides off and gets into all sorts of trouble, but he eventually saves the day.

“To his great delight, George is presented with a small bike; agrees to help a boy with his paper route; and is, again because of his curiosity, led into a fascinating adventure. Trouble he has, to be sure, but the adventure ends in a blaze of glory with George performing in a circus and gallantly rescuing a frightened baby bear.”—Horn Book

Throughout their lives H. A. and Margret Rey created many lively books together, including Spotty, Pretzel, and Whiteblack the Penguin. Their incorrigible little monkey, Curious George, has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere.

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.
