Publisher's Description

With afterword by Louise Borden Now in paperback: The first story to feature Curious George, with a historical afterword by Louise Borden.

“There is originality and a childlike humor in both the amusing antics and engaging pictures.”—Booklist

A lonely giraffe with no playmates meets nine monkeys with no home. Can there be a happy ending? Of course there can—one of the monkeys is Curious George!
This is the first story to feature Curious George, and when you read it, you’ll know why children demanded that Margret and H.A. Rey give him his very own adventures. Enjoy the fun on every page of this playful celebration of imagination and friendship. Louise Borden, author of The Journey that Saved Curious George, has written an afterword placing Cecily G. in historical context vis-a-vis the development of Curious George and the Reys’ personal journey.

Author Bio

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, published by Margaret McElderry Books, and The Journey That Saved Curious George, Across the Blue Pacific, and His Name Was Raoul Wallenberg, published by HMH. She lives with her husband, Pete, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and has three grown children. Her website can be found at www.louiseborden.com.

Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS. www.curiousgeorge.com.
