Cecily G. and the 9 Monkeys
Curious George Original Adventures Series Extra/Companion Book
Authors: H. A. Rey, Margret Rey

Book Info

Published in 1939
Age Group: 3 - 8 years

A lonely giraffe teams up with the nine playful monkeys.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
This is Cecily G. Her whole name is Cecily Giraffe, but she is called Cecily G. or just plain Cecily for short.

One day she was very sad because all her family and all her friends had been taken away to a zoo. Cecily G. was all alone. She began to cry because she wanted someone to play with.

Now, in another place, lived a mother monkey called Mother Pamplemoose and eight little monkeys. They were sad, too, because some woodcutters had cut down all the trees in their forest, and monkeys have to have trees to live in. One of the little monkeys was called Curious George. He was a clever monkey. He said, "We must pack up at once and go on a journey to find a new home."

Publisher Description:
Cecily G. and the Nine Monkeys was the first book to feature Curious George, as well as being Hans and Margret Rey's first book for children. In this initial effort, about a lonely giraffe befriended by George and his eight siblings, we see all the hallmarks of Curious George's signature style: humor, adventure, playfulness, and the episodic storytelling that later characterized classic George set pieces like the flyaway balloons, the rocket ship, and the bunny escape.
