Product Description

The very first story featuring Curious George! Cecily G. is a very sad giraffe who cries and cries until one day she meets a family of nine monkeys-including America's favorite monkey, Curious George. Cecily and the monkeys find many adventures for themselves, such as skiing (off Cecily's back, of course), sailing, and they even save Cecily's home from a fire! Included in the back is the history of Curious George and the history behind this first book, as well as a song the authors wrote for this story and an accompanying CD that reads the story with and without page turn signals.

Publisher's Description

Cecily G. is a lonely giraffe who finds herself befriended by nine monkeys—including everyone’s favorite curious monkey! Together they share many adventures—from skiing to sailing to the heroic saving of Cecily’s house. This first story featuring Curious George showcases the adventure and humor readers love about the Reys’ stories. This edition of the book includes Louise Borden’s engaging afterword that places Cecily G. in historical context vis-a-vis the development of Curious George and the Reys’ personal immigration journey.

Author Bio

The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be, Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father’s home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys’ home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including SPOTTY, PRETZEL, and lift-the-flap books such as HOW DO YOU GET THERE? The manuscript of 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. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. 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.

Louise Borden is the highly regarded author of many books, including Good Luck, Mrs. K!, Sleds on Boston Common, Good-bye, Charles Lindbergh and The Little Ships: The Heroic Rescue at Dunkirk in WW II--all published by Margaret McElderry Books. Across the Blue Pacific is based on the true story of her uncle, Theodore Taylor Walker, who served aboard the USS Albacore (SS-218) during World War II. She lives with her husband, Pete, in Terrace Park, Ohio, and has three grown children. Her website can be found at www.louiseborden.com.

Editorial Reviews
