The series was written and drawn by the team of Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey. The Reys produced many children's books, but the Curious George series was the most popular. Each book has been in continuous print since it was first published.
Curious George appeared in 1941. This book begins with George living in Africa and tells the story of his capture by the Man with the Yellow Hat, who takes him on a ship to "the big city" where he will live in the zoo. The remaining stories tell of George's adventures while living at the house of the Man with the Yellow Hat.
Aside from George himself, the only recurring character in the original adventures is the unnamed Man with the Yellow Hat. The Man often facilitates George's adventures by taking him somewhere, and even more often resolves the tension by intervening just in time to get George out of a tight spot.
This treasured classic is where it all began, seventy-five years ago in 1941.
The Cast will present a handful of books that will be weaved into a story, an adventure for Curious George. Starting with a flashback to where George came from and how he came to live in New York with the Man with the yellow hat. From there we go on a curious adventure with George as he sets out to visit Zany Land. However, on his way the curious monkey winds up in central park, flying kites, playing baseball, and joining a band before he finally makes it to his destination.
…. What a curious day.
