George gets a brand-new bicycle for his third anniversary with the man with the yellow hat. He rides off and gets into all sorts of trouble, but he eventually saves the day.
“To his great delight, George is presented with a small bike; agrees to help a boy with his paper route; and is, again because of his curiosity, led into a fascinating adventure. Trouble he has, to be sure, but the adventure ends in a blaze of glory with George performing in a circus and gallantly rescuing a frightened baby bear.”—Horn Book

Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.
