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 Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.
