Gr 1–3—A brief but entertaining introduction to Muppets creator Jim Henson. The text, narrated by Henson, presents his life story as if he were still alive but as a child version of himself (complete with a beard!). The factual information provided is solid, as is the back matter, which includes a time line of Henson's life and a few photographs. Some readers may be a bit perplexed when the time line reveals that Henson passed away in 1990. However, the effect of a miniature Henson narrating his own story is charming. The graphic novel—style illustrations are friendly, with speech bubbles and factoids peppered throughout. There are a few instances where the pages are a bit busy, but ultimately these incidents don't detract from the overall appeal of the work. VERDICT This bite-size biography of Henson is an endearing, attractive selection. Consider where the series is popular.—Taylor Worley, Springfield Public Library, OR
