Notable awards Curious George Takes a Job was named to the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award list in 1960. Hans Augusto Reyersbach was born in Hamburg, Germany, as was his wife Margret.
Hans and Margret were German Jews. The couple first met in Hamburg at Margret’s sister’s 16th birthday party. They met again in Brazil, where Hans was working as a salesman of bathtubs and Margret had gone to escape the rise of Nazism in Germany. He died three weeks before his 79th birthday. While in Paris, Hans’s animal drawings came to the attention of a French publisher, who commissioned him to write a children’s book. Curious George was an instant success, and the Reys were commissioned to write more adventures of the mischievous monkey and his friend, the Man in the Yellow Hat.
They wrote seven stories in all, with Hans mainly doing the illustrations and Margret working mostly on the stories, though they both admitted to sharing the work and cooperating fully in every stage of development. At first, however, covers omitted Margret’s name. The Reys relocated to Cambridge, Massachusetts during 1963, in a house near Harvard Square, and lived there until Hans’s death in 1977.
