More About H. a. Rey
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.
Reviews - What do customers think about Curious George's ABCs?
The twins loved it! Dec 3, 2007
We bought this book for our slightly-more-than-2-year-old twin grandsons, and they loved it. At this age, they're more interested in identifying the pictures than associating the drawings with the letters, but that's ok. There's something about the monkey image that is endlessly fascinating to them. Go for it!

I love all the curious George books. Who Doesn't?
author of "Hobo Finds A Home"
A real page-turner Oct 25, 2007
This was a gift to my son when he was five months old, and it was a fast favorite -- if only because there are so many more pages to turn than in your classic board book! Mom and Dad enjoy the clever, letter-incorporating illustrations in this romp through the alphabet and trust that in time, our boy will, too.
Curious George's ABC Jun 9, 2007
Great book for a two year old boy who loves Curious George. He imitates and watches him daily on television.
Educational fun with George Jan 26, 2001
In "Curious George's ABCs," one of the most famous characters from children's literature guides the reader through the alphabet. Each entry is illustrated by a noun that begins with that letter. To reinforce the alphabet, each letter is actually incorporated into the illustration. For example, the alligator's mouth opens in an angle that physically encloses the letter "A".
Curious George, the loveable monkey of the title, shows up as an observer or participant in most of the entries. As illustrated by H.A. Rey, George is as appealing as ever. I especially liked the illustration of George, bundled up in a snowsuit, looking at an "icy icicle." This is a good book for children learning the alphabet.
