About the book

When George sees his friend Gracie playing soccer in the park, he's eager to join in—so eager that he grabs the ball with his hands and throws it in the net! Lucky for George, there's a soccer camp starting at the rec center where he can learn the basic rules of the game and all about dribbling, passing, and what it means to be a team player. George has fun—and gets into a little mischief—at camp, but it's not until the final game that he finds the perfect position for him. When he does, he proves to his teammates, coach, and himself that he's their MVM—Most Valuable Monkey! 

 

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.
