Curious George at the Baseball Game

Play ball! George is going to watch a baseball game. One curious little monkey in one big stadium makes for one exciting day at the ballpark!

George is excited to cheer on the Mudville Miners at a very special baseball game, but it isn't long before this curious little monkey goes off to investigate the lively stadium. The colorful fans and concession stands are exciting, but there's nothing quite like helping a friend in need.

H. A. Rey (1898–1977) was born in Hamburg, Germany, near the world-famous Hagenbeck Zoo, and developed a lifelong love for animals and drawing. He and his wife, Margret (1906–1996), who studied art at the acclaimed Bauhaus school, had many pets—including two marmoset monkeys that joined them on one of their steamship journeys across the Atlantic. Hans and Margret’s world-famous curious monkey first appeared in a manuscript strapped to their bicycles as they fled wartime Paris for the safety of the United States. Committed philanthropists in their own lives, a portion of proceeds from each Curious George book sold flows to the Curious George Foundation, which funds programs for children that encourage inquisitiveness in learning and exploring. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.www.curiousgeorge.com.
