Jim Henson's Red Book on Henson.com. For those who don't know about that excellent blog, Jim Henson's Red Book, the actual physical book (or books), was a journal Jim Henson kept from 1965-1988 in which he made a one-line notation about what he did that day. The blog posts one of those notations every day, sometimes with historical information from the Henson archivist. Today's blog post reads: "5/2/1971 - 'Kermit reviews 11 frog books in NY Times Book Review." As my Google Reader tells me, this is "not a curated entry." But, what! Kermit the Frog reviews in the New York Times Book Review! So, I decided to dig up the actual reviews in order to see what it was all about. Of course, once I had the reviews I wanted to see if the books were available on Amazon, and then I thought, I'm not the only person who would want to see this list on Amazon, which meant a Listmania! must be made. So I made one. To see the froggy list with quotes from the actual reviews (as permitted by my 2000 character limit), check out With a Hop and a Croak: Kermit the Frog Reviews in the New York Times.
