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.

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.
