Note: 
An illustrated non-fiction book that is a triple biography of Curious George and his two creators. It echoes the spirit of the Curious George books, with short, pithy sentences and loose, amusing illustrations that include watercolor drawings, maps, diary pages, and photographs. The story documents the lives of H.A. and Margaret Rey, who fled the Nazis from Paris on bicycles with the manuscript of Curious George (then called Fifi) in their backpacks. The engrossing, playful style brings life-affirming values to a grim time in history. Except for the fact that the Reys were Jewish, there is no Jewish content.
