It was too late for Holden to run...and suicide to stay! A classic western novel by Dean Owen (a pseudonym of the prolific western author Dudley Dean McGaughey).
This double early reader features two favourite stories from the Emmy Award-winning PBS show, Curious George Plants a Seed and Curious George: The Perfect Carrot, plus a sheet of colourful stickers! In Curious George Plants a Seed, George has to make a few planting mistakes before his green thumb starts to kick in. In Curious George: The Perfect Carrot, George learns how to grow a beautiful prize carrot, and then unselfishly uses it to help his neighbour Bill find his lost bunnies. Includes fun facts about supporting locally grown food, a bean sprout planting activity, and a delicious recipe for carrot muffins. AGES: 4 to 8 AUTHOR: The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be; Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father's home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys' home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including Spotty, Pretzel, and lift-the-flap books such as How Do You Get There? The manuscript of 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. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. 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 favourites as Cecily G. and the Nine Monkeys and Find the Constellations. Colour throughout
