Macbeth the Usurper

Curious George

I was reading Curious George to the girl when I realized what was catching me about that book. All the houses were European. They seemed German or Austrian to me. I thought that curious. However, I double-guessed myself and decided that they were French. The US got many French artists during and after WWII.

Jen thought I was full of it. She then looked up Curious George, only to discover that Hans Rey was from Germany. He was living in France when WWII broke out and fled the country.

AHA. No wonder I was confused. The answer was both.
