Contributor Bio(s):
Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.

In Happy Easter, George impresses everyone with his four-handed Easter egg decorating and juggling. In Pizza Party, George is invited to a create-your-own-pizza party, where he makes a mess. They're two more plot-by-numbers Curious George adventures. The illustrations are decent-enough imitations of Rey's style, although characters wear the same dopey expression on nearly every page.

George and the man with the yellow hat go to the park for Easter festivities. As always, George's charm and curiosity liven things up: he experiments with mixing colors while dyeing eggs and even juggles them. Though he's initially confused about hiding eggs, when the "Easter Bunny" (a little, white rabbit) escapes, George saves the day. Fans will appreciate that Young's artwork hews to Rey's original illustrations; a page of sparkling stickers adds an interactive element. Ages 3–7. (Mar.)
