Jim Henson broke into television with a five-minute puppetry segment when he was only a freshman in college. He created puppets like none ever seen before, with expressive fabric faces and rod-controlled arms. His Muppets became world-renowned celebrities and formed the backbone of a media empire. With black-and-white illustrations throughout, this easy-to-read biography will be published twenty years after Henson's untimely death.

It is great. I love how it talks about his life and his career. All the books from this series always inspire me. Totally recommend!

Jim always loved to draw! When he got a little older he started being a puppeteer. He worked on that hard until it formed the Muppets . Jim loved what he did! Jim soon got to be on tv with his puppets but he knew he wanted to be more than a puppeteer. You'll have read it to find out his entire life story. I loved this book!I recommend to all ages and I rate this book 4/5 stars ! 😁 - Pizzagirl7 😉

Jim Henson is my idol he was the one that inspired me to do more and film my puppet shows.....


This book was ok. It tells all about Jim Hensons life and how he created the Muppets. It also tells about the adventures his life took him on. His life seemed very interesting and fun. I recomend this book to people who haven't read it.
