The Journey that Saved Curious George

By Louise Borden

Added May 6, 2009

World War II had just started. Hans and Margret Rey were German-born Jewish artists living in France. As Hitler’s tanks rolled into Paris in 1940, the Reys escaped on bicycles. In one bicycle basket were the Reys’ drawings and story of a mischievous little monkey with the French name Fifi. The Journey That Saved Curious George: The True Wartime Escape of Margret and H.A. Rey is the exciting and inspiring story of how the Reys and Fifi made it to New York, where Fifi became Curious George. Visit Louise Borden’s official website.
