About the book

George has many friends in his neighborhood and they all have very different jobs. As George travels to some of his favorite places, like the fire station, the farm, and the science museum, the six sturdy pull tabs reveal the professions of George’s friends who work there as well as an object particular to that location. The final spread pictures different professions and includes a game that encourages children to discover what kind of interesting jobs can be found in their neighborhood.

About the author
H. A. Rey

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.
