Curious George and the Dump Truck

By Margaret and H.A. Rey

Curious George is the spirit of Boston. Margaret and H.A. Rey brought the manuscript to the US when they fled the Nazi invasion of France in 1940. They settled in Cambridge, and the curious little monkey became a standard for kids to learn from their mistakes, and perhaps learn to curb their impulses. We love them all, but Curious George and the Dump Truck especially reminds us of the pond in the Boston Public Garden.
