Monkey Business


It's Monday--Picture Books Past. There's an exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York City called "Curious George Saves the Day: The Art of Margret and H.A. Rey." It has "...nearly eighty original drawings and preparatory dummies for Margret and H. A. Rey children’s books and documentation related to their escape from Nazi-occupied Europe." See a sample here on the museum's website and read an article about it here at the New York Times (their summary slide show is here.) Do you remember reading Curious George as a child? Why do you think he's a classic character?
