Without Sam and Friends, there may not have been a Sesame Street or a Muppet Show. It’s such an important part of Henson history, and thanks to Muppet writer Craig Shemin, we’re about to get a whole book about it.

Sam and Friends: The Story of Jim Henson’s First Television Show has a release date! The book will be available this September 24th (hey, that’s Jim’s birthday!), with a foreword written by Frank Oz.

The book also has an updated cover, inspired by artwork by Jim Henson, newly illustrated by ToughPigs friend and Muppet artist extraordinaire Dave Hulteen!

Stay tuned for more info, and get excited to get your mitts on this sure-to-be-incredible book!
