What an utterly delightful book! Any of you who have wondered and marveled at the Muppets’ humor, rare philosophy and undaunted spirit will thrill to read every enticing line.

From the moment Kermit was discovered plucking his banjo in the swamp to his signing the Standard Rich and Famous Contract, to the Muppet TV episodes, movies and his wonderful relationship with his best friend, Fozzie Bear, the ever glamorous Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Beaker, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Animal and a host of other splendid characters, this book traces the high (and low) points of Kermit’s life. Perhaps being a small, green amphibian gives one a rare perspective on life. One could just as easily be squashed or admired, praised or ignored.

Kermit reminds us that no matter how large the obstacles placed before us, follow your dream. A man or woman without a dream has no purpose at all. That vision of a brighter future gives one a reason to wake up in the morning, to try, to take chances and, hopefully, succeed in some of those efforts. So, get out there and follow your dream! You’ll be so glad that you did.

This book is written with classic Muppet wit. It was so funny that it had me laughing out loud every few pages. A definate must read for any Muppet fan.
