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 studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then 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 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.
Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring)
Pilfering illustrations from various Curious George books, this [cf2]Oh, the Places You'll Go![cf1] wannabe proceeds to make a mockery of H. A. Rey's creation. Bilingual platitudes about breaking free and going where your imagination and curiosity take you are aimed at the graduation-gift market. With the additional lines of Spanish text, the pages are crowded.
