Curious George Goes to Arkansas…From Nazi-Occupied France
You’ve probably known Curious George all your life, right? You remember when he pranked the fire department, when he got a job, and maybe even when he learned his ABCs. You might even know that he had his share of real-life adventures as well. It’s such a cool story, in fact, that an exhibit has been touring the country, and is currently on display at the Laman Library in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
Curious George was created by Hans and Margret Rey—two German-born Jewish artists who were living in Paris and writing an illustrated story about a curious monkey named Fifi, when the Germans occupied in 1940.
