some information about curious george:

The Curious George books have been segmented by Houghton Mifflin into a few categories: classic favorites, board books with scenes from the original books, books adapted from the film series, and new adventures. Classic favorites include the original seven books, all written and illustrated by the Reys. Board books are stories and books designed specifically for small children. The books adapted from the film series were published the 1980s and are mostly out of print. However, several have been re-released with new cover art. New adventures include books “illustrated in the style of H. A. Rey” by Mary O’Keefe Young, Vipah Interactive, Martha Weston, and Anna Grossnickle Hines. Around the world, the adventures of Curious George have been translated in many languages, and George takes on names such as Peter Pedal in Denmark, Nysgjerrige Nils in Norway, Nicke Nyfiken in Sweden, Hitomane Kozaru in Japan, George Ha’Sakran in Israel and Jorge El Curioso in Spanish speaking countries.

At first only Hans A. Rey was credited for the work in order to differentiate the Reys’ books from the large number of children’s books written by female authors. Later, Hans Rey was credited for the illustrations and Margret Rey for the writing. The Reys produced many other children’s books, but the Curious George series was the most popular. It has been re-edited continuously in the six decades since the first volume came out. The current United States publisher is Houghton Mifflin of Boston.

Curious George has the unofficial nickname of CG or Curious.
