Curious George is lucky to arrive at the library just in time for story hour, but it is not easy for a little monkey to sit still very long. Simultaneous. 58,000 first printing.
<p><b>Hans </b>and <b>Margret Rey </b>created many books during their lives together, including <i>Curious George</i>, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like <i>Spotty </i>and <i>Pretzel.</i> 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 <i>Curious George</i>, 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.<br /> </p>
