    This is a book for all ages

    If you like the Muppets or are at all interested in puppetry, this is an awesome book. It is a springboard for creativity in that it makes you look at ordinary things around your house in a new and wonderful way. Puppets are often overlooked when it comes to artistry and storytelling or they are considered to be only for the very young. This book will open your eyes to new possibilities. Step by step instructions are included for a menagerie of wonderful and easy creatures.

    Extreme creativity

    The age range for this book says 3-6 - that's an error! This is a manual for the imagination- it sparks crativity and encourages exploration while providing a treasure chest of photos. Young and old puppeteers will adore this fun-inspiring text!
