The Journey That Saves Curious George by Louise Borden
Curious George is known and loved all over the world. But few people know the exciting history of his creators. In 1940, Hans and Margret Rey had to flee their Paris home as the German army advanced on the capital city. They began their harrowing journey on bicycles with their children's book manuscripts among their few possessions. Lousie Borden combed primary resources, including Hans Rey's pocket diaries, to tell this dramatic true story.
