    Welcome to Muppet Central.

    Are you wanting to know if a talking book is in a particular Henson production or are you just curious if Henson has ever created an animatronic book for any of their productions?

    One doesn't immediately come to my mind, but that doesn't mean there wasn't one somewhere.

    I don't know if it was animatronic or not, but there was a talking book in some Disney Channel show that was live action and starred Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I don't know of anything else where there was a talking book.

    I had a talking hamster once, but my dog ate it. :(

    I don't think that was a Creature Shop job. I remember seeing the series, but I have no idea who did it.

    Not sure if this helps, but Steve Axtell's company Axtell Expressions has made giant talking books. They even have a sort of "how-to" here.

    Its from 'Sing Me A Story With Belle', I think Peter Linz performed Harmony the cat in that series.

    Assuming it was shot in Orlando for Disney, the book was probably done by one of the puppet/prop building shops in Florida. There are a couple that Disney regularly uses.
