A Children’s Book of Jim Henson’s Life Story

“I Am Jim Henson” Cover

Longtime readers may recall that I unexpectedly developed a penchant for The Muppets when my daughter became obsessed with them a few years ago (I wrote about that in this post). Sadly, she’s since outgrown them but I haven’t. That’s why I fully intend to buy this forthcoming book from author Brad Meltzer and illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos. It’s called “I Am Jim Henson,” and it’s a part of a biography series for kids called “Ordinary People Change the World.” It looks adorable; I’m sure my two younger kids will dig it, but even if they don’t, I will. The book is out in January.
