Millions of children have grown up reading all about Curious George, the adventurous monkey. However, less people know about the incredible escape experienced by the writers who created Curious George. Margret and H.A. Rey narrowly escaped German Nazis as they were taking over their hometown of Paris, France. Being part of the Jewish community, their desperate escape meant the difference between life and death. Read The Journey That Saved Curious George by Louise Borden, and follow them on their intense trip to safety that took them through France, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, and, finally, America.
