Title: The Journey That Saved Curious George: The True Wartime Escape of Margret and H.A. Rey
Publication Info: HMH Books for Young Readers (2010)
This brightly-illustrated book tells the true story of the creators of Curious George, Margret and H.A. Rey. Much like their monkey creation, they had to escape from some sticky situations. The couple lived in Paris on the verge of World II and made their escape from the city by bicycle hours before the German army marched in. It’s a fascinating story, and this book left me wanting to know more.
