    It will be nice to see something new. I hope that it goes into more depth than his previous biographies, most of which were for children other than Jim Henson: The Works.

    Hi Guys,

    Unfortunetly, this looks like yet another un official Kids reference book. Although Im not 100% sure. I just searched for the publisher on the web and found them, It also shows this pic of the book, again, not very reassuring. However at $25.00 it must be quite good???

    A new Book at the moment would be fantastic, with Kermits 50th and The Muppet Show 25 years (well now 30 years) A full history of the Muppets book similar in design to The Works would be great.

    I'll be happy as long as it gives some information on at least one of the following:

    *Little Muppet Monsters
    *Follow That Bird
    *Christmas Eve on Sesame Street
    *The playhouse videos from 1985
    *The Play-Along Videos

    yea........I don't think he can be biographied in 144 pages or whatever.....it seems to me there is so much more to Jim than what has been talked about in the other bios....we're reading about him as the inovator and the creative genious as an overview....but not really so much as a person.....I mean with reading "It's not easy being green" I felt that tapped into him as person so much more, because it was things he said and people who knew him the closest not just in the working envoroment but in his home and personal domain as well.......I just feel there needs to be something more.........but I will read this book.....

    Nothing to be happy about. Another kiddie time book, and even worse, it is in a SERIES of books. Everything we read before. Crap again :mad:

    We are all missing out on a big time biography. This is not it. I hope somebody does the real work soon:D

    To do it right, you study everything and everbody for 2-3 years, man!

    Well, it has 144 pages so I don't think it will be much of a kiddie book Barry Lee.:)

    I just realized that this will be the first Jim Henson biography since Disney got the rights to the Muppets.

    I promise one day I shall do it! The only trouble will be persuading Jim's friends and relatives to give interviews and insights about his life, and also persuading the Henson archives and Disney to let me snoop through everything. :o
