Keep Curious and Carry a Banana Hardback



For more than seventy-five years, the world of Curious George has delighted readers with its playful charm and deceptively simple wisdom.

A. Rey's Curious George books. Sure to make readers chuckle as only George can, this book is packed with inspiration and humour.

It's the perfect gift for all the curious people in your life! AGES: 12 til adults 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 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.
