Points of collection interest

  • It is the first book in the Curious George series and tells the story of an orphaned monkey named George and his adventures with the Man with the Yellow Hat.
  • The idea for Curious George came from an earlier Rey work, Cecily G. and the Nine Monkeys. One of the characters in that story is Curious George. Margret and Rey then decided to create a book entirely focused on Curious George, which was an instant success. However, Margret Rey's name did not appear on early copies of Curious George because the publisher felt that children's literature was too dominated by women.
