    We'd like to encourage everybody to check out this GREAT new book "Memoirs of a Muppets Writer" by Muppet veteran, Joe Bailey. This is a must read and would make a great gift for any Muppet fan. There are some fantastic stories here that have never been told about how many of the most classic Muppet moments came to be (1970's Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, Christmas Eve on Sesame Street, the albums - Bert and Ernie's Sing-Along and The Count Counts and more).

    Find out all the info on the book and order your copy here.

    Does anyone else have this book?? I got mine today. It's paperback and there are no pics inside just text, I guess I was just expecting bigger, hardback and images!

    Well he is a writer, it makes sense the emphasis would be on text. ;)

    There are probably no images because of licensing/rights issues.

    Still, it sounds like something I might read. As I heard from a sign in Pixar studio, 'Story is King'.:wisdom:

    This book is AMAZING!! The stories in here are wonderful. You get a real inside look into the Muppets through his career and definitely one of the best books I have ever read as a muppet fan. You definitely need to get this book!

    It's an excellent book. Pity it is not a more widespread publication. Anyone with an interest in the Muppets, Sesame Street, or just television writing in general, would benefit from reading it.

    Just finished reading this yesterday. Not only does Bailey have some fascinating stories to tell, but some really great advice for writers as well. Really happy I got this.

    In a perfect world, anyone who ever worked for the Muppets would write a book like this - a little bit of history on how they got there, then a series of great stories of what went on there.
