About the Author & Illustrator:
Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide.
A Few Reviews:
“Truly amusing pictures.” —School Library Journal
“Katy No-Pocket is just that a cute book about a kangaroo with no pocket. This book is great as it opens up the conversation about kangaroos and how they carry their young as compared to other animals. It is also a way to discuss the concept of charity. Because, it is a charitable act that the workman gives Katy the apron off his back. It also opens up a conversation about empathy when the owl helps her out of concern for her sadness. I also like that it gives me an opportunity to discuss with my son the idea that sometimes things that seem bad aka Katy had no pocket to carry her baby; can become the catalyst for good aka Katy gets an apron with many pockets and she is able to carry many other animals when they need help. The illustrations of H. A. Rey, Curious George’s creator, are just as memorable, adorable, and lovable as always.” —Amazon Reviewer Karen Sanders
