I bought this book as a gag gift for my husband. He has been running around with the book quoting pepe the shrimp for days. It is humourous and very appropriate for adults who grew up with the muppets. Very enjoyable.

After seeing a video of an interview Pepe did a ways back, I decided to buy the book. I was really hoping for a full book written out in Pepe's voice; what I got was a series of anecdotes, phrases, and jokes (written in a typical joke book format) that were written in a half-hearted Pepe voice. Overall I was very disappointed.

I'm a big fan of all that is Muppets, but I felt that this was a let down. Pepe, being one of my favorites, I expected a great laugh from this book and if anything I got a few chuckles. WAY too short and really not much of a read.

This book is well written, okay.

If you are a fan of Pepe like I am, this is great. Some of the jokes aren't so good, but he's a muppet (or muffin if you will) and you expect them to be slightly risqué but still family friendly. I've never purchased any of the other Muppets books, as I really never had an interest until now. This is great for a casual fan or a die-hard fan as it should captivate everyone. It's a quick read (it isn't a novel) but at the price you can't go wrong.
