Just picked one up, and I'm currently in the second chapter. Brian Jones really goes deep into the story with some really deep backstories on the Henson Family dating back to the 1880s!

So far, so good! :smile:

I like how Brian Jay Jones knows his stuff. In past books about Jim, people would have described characters such as Big V, a "long nosed monster" but Brian actually puts the names of the Muppets. He mentioned Mushmellon for frog's sake! :smile:

Also, has anyone noticed that NONE of The Muppet Show Muppets appeared in the trailer? Probably because of the Disney copyrights stuff. I hope they are talked about in the book. :concern:

I'm half way done with it. Really good so far, although it's mostly information we've heard snippets of over the years. Jones doesn't analyze Henson much, he leaves that up to us. Really satisfied so far.
