    One thing I wanted to ask is how do you have it say just page this and page that? I can't seem to have it say that when I just want it to be copied on this theses theards. Could you show me how to do that?

    I'll try and make a tutorial for you later, Kyle. In the mean time...
    "Robin Hood" is coming. The book is fairly worn (it is my favorite after all!) so I have to do some color correction and touch-up work on it, so I thought you'd all enjoy a small treat whilst, and at the same time, you wait; in particular you Sesame Street fans! :p :(
    This is a publication goin' back to 1971! It's got some great illustrations and NO Elmo! I actually found this at a garage sale for a bank busting twenty-five cents. Yes, it is a little kids book, but it's nice to see "Featuring Jim Henson's Muppets" printed on a SS book. So check 'em out fellow fans and post yer' thoughts!

    This is one great book to have. I have this one too. I have lots of SS books. I'll get some of them up later when I get a tutorial from Vic.

    Hold on to your socks, it's the best Muppet book yet! "Robin Hood" featuring the Muppets was published in 1980, so you know it's filled with classic Muppets. In this adventure, the Muppets are very true to form and the book plays out almost like they're doing a sketch on the show: breaking the fourth wall to the reader, poking gags at every chance, rife with puns and jokes so corny you gotta' laugh out loud. Be on the look out for some other fun stuff as well though; like the News Man without his glasses as an archer, Kermit with a real frog, a very mean and scary looking Camilla, how animal stays in his regular open shirt and ripped jeans while the rest of the gang dawns medieval threads, and as always; Kermit looks dashing in green.
    In my opinion, this is one of the most beautifully illustrated Muppet books with lots of little, easy to miss site gags (see if you can find: Robin, the castle's laundry, faces in the trees and the little squirrel who makes an appearance on almost every page). This was my favorite bed time story as a kid and I still read it to this day as one of my favorites; I hope you enjoy it just as much.

    Gorgeous. I saw this book (Robin Hood) a couple years ago and I always meant to grab it on eBay, but I forgot. Just lovely.

    Vic, these are awesome, thanks so much!

    You don't happen to have Kermit and Cleopigtra, do you? That was a favorite of mine as a kid ;)

    I so wish I did, it has some of the best artwork ever. Alas, I do not, but I keep an eye out for Muppet books everywhere I go, so when I get a new one, you guys will know about it. I need a break from all this scanning and what not, so it's gonna' be just a little while before the next one goes up. The next one by the way will most likely be "Muppet Manners (Or the Night Gonzo Gave a Party)". This is actually a very funny book with a real Muppet feel to it and once again, some fantastic Muppet art work. :concern:

    Ditto. :D

    I just discovered the thread last Friday. (I can't believe it took me so long!)

    Which books do you have? Maybe we can vote on the next one. (Though you did mention "Muppet Manners".)

    Do you have this?

    Dude, if you accept requests, got any of the older Muppet Babies books?:)
