Growing up in the 80’s resulted in Sesame Street, the Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, and Labyrinth…all involving in some way Jim Henson.  The creator and producer of The Muppets, he was most famous for being the voice behind the frog, Kermit.

This extensive biography covered from his childhood, to his college and young 20’s years of forming the new way of puppetry by creating the ability to use facial expressions.  It also covers his marriage, love of cars, and his tragic death from a staph infection.  His son Brian Henson has done a terrific job of taking over the reigns from his father.

The pictures included are fantastic.  I highly recommend this book.
