There are few things that evoke such a universal feeling of warmth and humor as the work of Jim Henson. In his own words, as well as those of some of his best-known characters like Kermit the Frog and Ernie, we'll get a glimpse of the philosophy and humor that was so essential to Jim's creations. We'll also get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the collaborative spirit of this gentle artistic genius from the people Jim knew, loved, and inspired.

This uplifting collection of quotes, stories, anecdotes, songs, and insights gives new life to Jim's magical world. With chapters titled Dynamite Determination; Listen to Your Heart; Together We Can Do It; It Starts When We're Kids; and A Part of Everything and Everyone, It's Not Easy Being Green is by turns entertaining, inspiring, and laugh-out-loud funny, reminding us that every day counts. Readers young and old will cherish this collection.

Culled from The Jim Henson Company archives, program transcripts, personal letters, and interviews, along with some of Jim's never-before-published writings, It's Not Easy Being Green is a testament to the legacy of a man who changed the way we see the world.

    " Not exactly a tough read, but it was a sweet tribute to Jim Henson, who has always been one of my heroes. This little book made me love him more, and made me wish I could be more like him. It probably made me think more than anything I've read in awhile. "

    " What a lovely little book. If you like Kermit, Cookie Monster, and Jim’s other work, and if their collected wisdom won’t strike you as trite and if you don’t mind a little adoration, then I recommend this book. The illustrations (by Jim) are awesome. "
