Product Description

Katy Kangaroo was very sad because she had no pocket in which to carry her son, Freddy. While all the other kangaroo children rode around in their mother's pockets, poor Freddy had to walk! Freddy was very sad about this too, but one day Katy had an idea. Why not find out how the rest of the animals in the forest carried their babies? So Katy and Freddy went to all their friends to find a good way of carrying Freddy, but alas, not even the way the crocodiles did it, or the monkeys did it, or the lions or the birds did it, would help Katy and Freddy Kangaroo. In despair, they finally asked the wise, old owl, who told them to go to the City. To the City they went, and how they found--not one pocket--but dozens of them makes an exciting and comfortable end to the story.

Author Bio

Emmy Payne comes from a family of published authors and began writing her own stories as a young child. She has also written more than twenty mystery books in collaboration with her mother, Christine Noble Govan.

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.
