        Curious George was published by Houghton Mifflin in 1941, and for sixty years he has been capturing the hearts and minds of readers throughout the world. All the Curious George books, including the seven original stories by Margret and Hans Augusto Rey, have sold over 25 million copies. So popular that his original story has never been out of print, George has become one of the most beloved and most recognizable characters from children's literature. His adventures have been translated into many languages, including Japanese, French, Afrikaans, Portuguese, Swedish, German, Chinese, Danish, and Norwegian.
