Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Thirty years of Sesame Street is celebrated in this history of the children's show aimed at nostalgic adults, but also suitable for kids. The design is so busy that one has to search for the meat, but it is there: Bert and Ernie jokes and sketches; the birth of Kermit the Frog; Count Dracula. The show's writers prove again and again their closeness to American popular culture by their amiable theft and reuse of classic material. Perhaps the most interesting section shows how the muppets work, complete with bios of puppeteers who have spent their lives beneath and inside of characters such as Big Bird.
School Library Journal
YA-An entertaining and educational look at this remarkable program. When Sesame Street first aired on November 10, 1969, not even the most optimistic visionaries of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting could have foreseen its worldwide success. Young adults who have known Big Bird, Bert, and Ernie since birth will fondly remember their preschool days. They will also appreciate the clever dialogue and humor that kept their parents watching with them. Borgenicht does an outstanding job of conveying his enthusiasm for all aspects of the show. The book's title is a clever suggestion of a fun-loving expos and Sesame Street Unpaved does, indeed, expose all of the activities, characters, and creatures that have made Sesame Street a cultural icon. The book layout is high energy, just like the program. The variety of fonts, photos, graphics, and the bright colors are exciting. The trivia questions, the behind-the-scenes secrets, and Muppet profiles are great fun while the technical tidbits are informative. A sentimental stroll for all of those fans who have spent time together watching Sesame Street.-Nancy Karst, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
