Curious George Rides a Bike (Paperback)
George can do all kinds of tricks on his new bicycle--even popping a wheelie! When the Man with the Yellow Hat tells him not to go too far, George gets curious and sets off on a journey through his neighborhood. From helping the paperboy with his route to offering a bugle to an ostrich to helping a bear down from a tree, this classic story will be sure to entertain young readers in signature Rey style.
H. A. Rey (1898–1977) was born in Hamburg, Germany, near the world-famous Hagenbeck Zoo, and developed a lifelong love for animals and drawing. He and his wife, Margret (1906–1996), who studied art at the acclaimed Bauhaus school, had many pets—including two marmoset monkeys that joined them on one of their steamship journeys across the Atlantic. Hans and Margret’s world-famous curious monkey first appeared in a manuscript strapped to their bicycles as they fled wartime Paris for the safety of the United States. Committed philanthropists in their own lives, a portion of proceeds from each Curious George book sold flows to the Curious George Foundation, which funds programs for children that encourage inquisitiveness in learning and exploring. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.www.curiousgeorge.com.
