The H. A. Rey Treasury of Stories
From the author of the Curious George series comes this collection of four humorous and marvelously illustrated stories: Tit for Tat concerns kindness to animals and portrays a place where horses ride in carriages drawn by men and women, fish catch humans, cows lasso cowboys, and dogs walk people. Elizabite: Adventures of a Carnivorous Plant uses rhyming couplets to recount the humorous antics of a hungry plant in a botanist's laboratory. Billy's Picture, a tale of art and individualism, tells of Billy the Bunny's attempts to paint a picture. Each of his friends has a different idea about how it should look ? and they all want to help. (co-written with Margret Rey) Zebrology offers a wordless celebration of the common ground that lies beneath appearances. AUTHOR: Hans Augusto Rey was a co-author of the bestselling Curious George books. He and his wife, Margret Rey, left France before the outbreak of World War II and arrived in New York with the manuscript for the first Curious George title, published by Houghton Mifflin Company in 1941. The couple continued to write children's books together until H. A. Rey's death in 1977.
