From Publishers Weekly
Kermit follows up last year's It's Not Easy Being Green with this
self-help memoir, in which he uses his life experiences-from his humble
beginnings in a family of 2,353 through his fifty years in the
entertainment business-to help readers lead a better life. Discussing
his early career, Kermit admits to some less-than-sterling gigs ("I'd
work naked") and the concessions he made to find a place show business:
"I'd work with pigs. It seemed like a harmless egalitarian gesture at
the time." Kermit's views on love in Chapter 12, "Love, Amphibian
Style: Romancing the Pig and Other Warnings," come from his tumultuous
relationship with Miss Piggy, as "love has always been defined by Miss
Piggy (She even sent me a dictionary with our picture next to the word
'love.')." Miss Piggy also has business tips to offer in "Miss Piggy's
Secrets of Success," and most of the Muppet cast makes an appearance in
such features as "Fridays with Fozzie" and a Muppet roundtable that
includes Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Floyd Pepper. Though his advice on
handling the ups and downs of life isn't ground-breaking, Kermit's
delivery is funny and gentle throughout, and bound to be a comfort to
fans-especially during the downs (for which, see Chapter 8, "When Bad
Things Happen to Good Frogs").
