With the help of the man with the yellow hat, Curious George plants and grows carrots in a little garden plot of his own. When his carrots are finally ready to be pulled from the ground, George decides that his prize carrot is too perfect to eat. But when George stumbles upon his friend Bill's pet bunnies lost and hungry, he doesn't hesitate to share his carrot to help save the day.
George's food-growing adventure has an environmentally friendly theme and includes fun facts about locally grown foods and a delicious recipe for carrot muffins.
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.
