    Hi-Ho! everyone, It is I Dwayne here with another idea for Muppet Central forums! A Muppet Central Book Club, where each month we showcase a different Muppet/Henson book. There are many several great Muppet/Henson books for people of all ages, and I think it would be a fun way to encourage reading as well. What do you all think?

    :insatiable: And a glass of milk.

    ha ha you guys are funny! So far people seem to like the idea, but what book would be the first one? I have "My life as a shrimp" from Pepe, but what other books would the club like to showcase.

    I don't have very many Muppet books of my own, but a Muppet book club sounds like a great idea. There are many kinds of Muppet books to talk about, from classic children's stories to behind the scenes biographies. It might even encourage those who don't have these books to get them.

    As for suggestions, would it be too early to dicuss Jim Henson: The Biography? :jim:

    I don't think it's too early to discuss the biography but there is a separate thread about it already. Most of the discussion about it should be there. I think we should concentrate on an earlier book. Perhaps The Works which would be a nice compliment to the biography.

    I would love to showcase that book, in fact I would love to review the book for Muppet Central as well. I think as far as Jim Henson books go, that book is going to be the one to own.

    Another book I would love to showcase is "Look Before you Leap" by Kermit the Frog. That book has a specal place in my heart for a lot of reasons.

    I whole-hearted agree with 'Before You Leap'. That book is a true testament to Jim Lewis and his amazing insight into the characters. I don't think anybody could have done such an insightful job. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

    I'm all for discussing Before You Leap as the first book as well. Great suggestion dwayne1115.

    Yeah! A Muppet book club! I'm all for it! We should share our thoughts on Muppets Most Wanted; The Junior Novel

    I would love to join in the book club, but I haven't read a Henson-related book. Doggone it! I am so behind and I need to check out a Henson book from the library if there is one.

    Tough Pigs used to have a book club (all the older entries are still there), so I don't see why this fan site can't have one!

    Neat idea, but there are only so many muppet books that are not picture books.

    Why would it or would not have to be a picture book? I thought it could be both.

    I don't know the plan has kind of been dead in the water for months but after looking over the thread people do seem really excited about the idea. So I'll keep you updated.
