Your outside-the-box kid will enjoy this biography of the creative mind behind the Muppets. 3rd-5th grade interest, or younger for read-alouds. The book shows Henson practicing and trying new things, despite public and parental disapproval. It shows him relaxed and playful, and quietly thinking and sketching. It also pictures him posed behind and under his Muppets, making the magic happen.
Sensational, detailed illustrations -- the people have a soft, out-of-focus look, while the Muppets seem real.
