Three books in one—triple the fun! These popular paperbacks, based on the award-winning Curious George PBS TV show—The Surprise Gift, Snowy Day, and A Winter’s Nap—make a splendid companion for a cold winter’s night. In The Surprise Gift, Curious George discovers that there are plenty of things to unwrap besides presents, but not everything can be rewrapped! In Snowy Day, George enjoys his first snow day and learns all about skiing, sledding, and snowshoes. In A Winter’s Nap, George decides to hibernate like a bear, but can a monkey sleep through the winter? For more monkey fun, investigate www.curiousgeorge.com.
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.
