Billy the Bunny is painting a picture. He knows just how he wants it to look, but each of his friends has a different idea—and they all want to help. Penny the Puppy, Greta the Goose, and a parade of other animals add to the mix, and soon Billy’s picture is nothing like what he imagined.
Is it a puppygoose? A porcuphant? What will Billy do?
From the creators of Curious George, Spotty, and Pretzel, this story about art and individuality is back in print after many years. It will be welcomed by any small child ready to giggle.
About the Author
H. A. Rey
H. A. Rey (1898–1977) was born in Hamburg, Germany, near the world-famous Hagenbeck Zoo, and developed a lifelong love for animals and drawing. He and his wife, Margret (1906–1996), who studied art at the acclaimed Bauhaus school, had many pets—including two marmoset monkeys that joined them on one of their steamship journeys across the Atlantic. Hans and Margret's world-famous curious monkey first appeared in a manuscript strapped to their bicycles as they fled wartime Paris for the safety of the United States. Committed philanthropists in their own lives, a portion of proceeds from each Curious George book sold flows to the Curious George Foundation, which funds programs for children that encourage inquisitiveness in learning and exploring. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.www.curiousgeorge.com.
