The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Brian Jay Jones’ Jim Henson biography, with the cooperation of the Henson family, beginning with Henson’s days as an early TV pioneer, innovative artist, and businessman who created a whole new way to present puppetry, covering Henson’s creations, such as The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, and his important contribution to the development and success of Sesame Street, and describing his groundbreaking artistic and technological work that continues to this day.

(Good excuse for a word from the chef.)

The Pit:

Justin Bieber’s “official illustrated memoir” Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story, promising lots of never-before-seen photos.
