The inside story of the first 40 years of “Sesame Street,” narrated by the creator of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, is a treat of nostalgia and insight. Puppeteer Caroll Spinney presents Michael Davis's behind-the-scenes account of this iconic children's program in a comfortable, almost conversational, manner. He navigates the rich detail of the text with clarity and employs a brisk pace that keeps the listener involved. Spinney accomplishes this while maintaining a subtle level of emotion as he speaks of people who were dear friends and co-workers. This unique blend of an author with an intimate knowledge of his subject and a narrator who was directly involved with all the personalities and events provides the listener with a special experience.
