From Publishers Weekly
PreSchool-Using illustrations from the original Curious George series (Houghton Mifflin), the publisher has produced two very nice board books, translated into a neutral and accessible Spanish appropriate for younger audiences. In Curious George and the Bunny, the lovable monkey is featured in a problem-solving story. George cannot resist approaching a cage full of bunnies and taking one out to pet. When one escapes and runs away, George must devise a way to find him and bring him back to his mother. In Curious George's Opposites, there is no story, rather a series of scenes featuring the mischievous monkey that illustrate concepts, such as up, down; in front, behind; dry, wet; and so forth. Recommended for bookstores and libraries serving preschoolers.Maria Otero-Boisvert, "Criticas"

About the Author
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.
