The first thing I noticed about the book is that it has a really unique fuzzy orange cover. Inside, there's lot of colorful pictures and drawings of the puppets and cast.
The book has five chapters. Chapter 1 is entitled, "How Did They Ever Think of This?" and tells the story of how the show came to be; Chapter 2 is entitled, "How to Make a Puppet Come to Life!" and tells how the puppets were made; Chapter 3 is entitled, "A is for Actors!" and tells about the actors; Chapter 4 is "The Script of Avenue Q!" and contains lyrics to all the songs; and Chapter 5 is entitled "How a Small Show Got Big!"

The fuzzy cover alone is worth the effort.
Add an extra star if you are an Avenue Q fan.
(Buyer beware: the fuzzy cover of the book sheds orange fur everywhere!)
