    ORIGINAL HANS REY DRAWING

    You get this one, rare 24X24 original sketch of Curious George from Hans Rey's famous "Chalk Talk" sessions, signed by Hans Rey in 1966 to the Plymouth Library in New Hampshire

    Those children who were lucky enough to be present at a Hans Rey chalk recall how magical it was - Hans would prepare a blank piece of paper and begin talking to them, and before you know it, an animal sketch had appeared.

    This is a rare drawing of Curious George by one of the world’s premiere children’s book authors and illustrators. Courtesy of The Rey Center in Waterville Valley.

    You'll also receive a GOLD LEVEL THANK YOU in the film's credits, a digital copy of the final film, and the rewards from the REY COLORING BOOK, SEE THE CIRCUS, HANS DRAWN .gifs and GET A MEDAL reward levels.
