Louise Borden combed primary resources, including Hans Rey’s pocket diaries, to tell this dramatic true story. Archival materials introduce readers to the world of Hans and Margret Rey while Allan Drummond dramatically and colorfully illustrates their wartime trek to a new home.
Follow the Rey’s amazing story in this unique large format book that resembles a travel journal and includes full-color illustrations, original photos, actual ticket stubs and more. A perfect book for Curious George fans of all ages.
If Hans and Margaret Rey had not escaped the 1940 ****** invasion of Paris, the classic children's book character Curious George might have never made it to print. This is the wonderfully researched and written story of their unnerving escape on hand-built bicycles to southern France. Opening with interesting stories about their childhoods, author Louise Borden goes on to describe their 1935 marriage in Brazil, and years spent in Paris that ended with a frantic flight south with just a few possessions and some manuscripts. This fascinating account is accompanied by full-color illustrations, historical and personal photographs, reproductions of documents, and various snippets of original Rey artwork.
