This is my favorite of the "I Am" series, mostly because I loved Jim Henson. It was interesting to see how he got his start and I love these books because they are written so simply yet cover a lot of information. The best part about this book is/are the illustrations. Wow, just amazing and so much detail. It's cute how in all of the books in this series, the main characters are drawn as kids. It's the same here, but Jim Henson has a beard and a mustache throughout the whole book which I thought was really cute. There are a few lines from some famous songs from both Sesame Street and The Muppet Movie and I'll be the first to admit that I found myself humming the songs as I read the lyrics. Really fun book for adults and kids.
