We have all grown up loving the curious little monkey named Curious George. For years he has filled our minds and hearts with adventure and excitement! But do you know about the true-to-life adventure that saved Curious George from nonexistence? Thanks to author Louise Burden, we now know the true story behind our favorite little monkey!
In the book entitled "The Journey That Saved Curious George: The True Wartime Escape of Margret and H.A. Rey," Mrs. Burden unveils the journey taken by the authors and creators of Curious George. In 1940, H.A. and Margret Rey had to flee their Paris home as the German army advanced on the capital city. They began their harrowing journey taking only a few possessions, including the book manuscript that was to become Curious George!
