Curious George

I was listening to the Sept. 16 Writer's Almanac podcast - a must-listen for all writers - and heard the amazing story of Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey, the creators of Curious George. The two built bikes, took their manuscript and fled Paris in 1941, escaping Hitler's terrible reign. They got to the Spanish border, made it to Brazil and finally to New York, where they published the wonderful books. I thought that was a neat story.
