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.

Cecily is a lonely giraffe with no playmates. Her family and friends have all been taken away to the zoo. So her spirits rise when she meets Mother Pamplemoose and Baby Jinny, James, Johnny, Arthur, David, Punch and Judy—and Curious George. These nine monkeys have no home, because all the trees in their forest have been cut down. Now they’ve all teamed up and are about to share an adventure in this delightful story by H.A. Rey—the precursor to his classic picture books starring the clever and mischievous monkey.
“There is originality and a childlike humor in both the amusing antics and engaging pictures.” —Booklist
