Growing up watching The Muppet Show, The Dark Crystal, and Fraggle Rock - it's hard not to be a Jim Henson fan. The characters and stories that came out of the Jim Henson studios were always entertaining. The tales in this volume are also entertaining and often have a moral to them, as many of the greatest tales often do. Presented by a variety of artists and writers, each story has its own style, yet they work well together as a collection. The inspiration for the stories comes from diverse roots such as Japanese and Russian folk tales and French fairy tales. You may recognize many of them as old friends that have donned a new appearance, while others may be completely new to you. Familiarity doesn't matter though, you will enjoy them all. Perfect for readers of all ages and a feast for the eyes as well as the mind.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
