It’s official! The next Toronto StoryMobs title will be the classic, Curious George by H.A. Rey. This story is nearly 75 years old! And although some of the content might now be considered out-dated, we get to celebrate the good, the bad and the crazy with all the books we make into a StoryMob. We can’t wait to see you with your yellow hats, monkey ears and other props (and don’t forget that big cigar!) Join us Sunday, August 31, 2014 at a secret Toronto location to be announced the day before the event. For planning purposes, we will tell you that the location will be in the south east quadrant of the city and that we will hold our StoryMob between 1-3:30pm. (precise timing also to be announced soon). Make sure you are on our mailing list in order to receive important updates and details about this StoryMob (just enter your email on the right side of this website).

Check out this fascinating tidbit about the author(s) and the genesis of Curious George.
(Excerpted from Wikipedia – see the full entry) The series was written and drawn by the team of Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey. The couple fled Paris in June 1940 on self-made bicycles, carrying the Curious George manuscript with them.At first only H. A. Rey was credited for the work in order to distinguish the Reys’ books from the large number of children’s books written by female authors. Later, Hans Rey was credited for the illustrations and Margret Rey for the writing. The Reys produced many other children’s books, but the Curious George series was the most popular. The books have been continuously in print during the six decades since the first volume came out.
