I loved this book!

Review by Ari

This is an astonishing and detailed book about how Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey escaped the horrors of World War II. The book told about the Jewish refugees' journey across Europe on bike and train. This insightful book gave me an amazing story about how this journey saved one of the most beloved book characters. After reading it I would give this book a six star rating if I could!

The Journey That Saved Curious George

Review by treemonkey

Have you ever read or watched Curious George? Curios George is one of the most popular book characters and he only exists because his Jewish creators, Margret and Hans Agusto Rey survived their escape from Germany in WWII. The Journey That Saved Curious George is an exiting read and I highly recomend it.
