Curious George's First Day of School
It’s the first day of school and George has been invited to Mr. Apple’s class to be a special helper! George is just the right monkey for the job—that is, until he starts to make his usual mischief. A mixture of red and yellow paint makes orange . . . a mixture of yellow and blue makes green . . . and a mixture of all the paint colors makes a big mess! After a speedy adventure up and down the halls of the school, George and Mr. Apple clean up the classroom—with a little help from George’s new friends.

About the Author
H. A. Rey (1898–1977) was born in Hamburg, Germany, near the world-famous Hagenbeck Zoo, and developed a lifelong love for animals and drawing. He and his wife, Margret (1906–1996), who studied art at the acclaimed Bauhaus school, had many pets—including two marmoset monkeys that joined them on one of their steamship journeys across the Atlantic. Hans and Margret’s world-famous curious monkey first appeared in a manuscript strapped to their bicycles as they fled wartime Paris for the safety of the United States. Committed philanthropists in their own lives, a portion of proceeds from each Curious George book sold flows to the Curious George Foundation, which funds programs for children that encourage inquisitiveness in learning and exploring. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.www.curiousgeorge.com.
