I am a big fan of the Muppets, and it was great to know about their creator . I watched Sesame Street when I was little and, one of my favorite shows is the Muppet Show. I didn't know that Jim's brother died when he was only 22! I liked this biography, but one thing they could of did was talk a little more about the other puppeteers, such as Jerry Nelson, Dave Golez, and Richard Hunt, and what they did.
