Cecily G and the 9 Monkeys


No Longer Available On Babylist

What weabout it
This is the first book Curious George appears in, and this edition includes the spellbinding story of the book's authors.


This is a playful story filled with humor, warmth and dynamic graphics. There’s a message about environmental responsibility too.

A giraffe is sad because her family has been taken away to a zoo; a gaggle of monkeys is sad because their forest home has been chopped down. The giraffe’s long limbs become a playground for the little monkeys, led by George, who would later star in his own series.

But before that could happen, authors and illustrators Hans and Margret Rey would have to escape Nazi Europe—by bicycle. Read all about their journey in the afterward by children’s writer Louise Borden.
