JIM HENSON The Biography

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne

Biography & Memoir • 21.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Jim Henson was clearly a creative genius, and his legacy lives on in his beloved Muppets. Narrator Kirby Heyborne is an excellent choice for this audiobook, as he seems to effortlessly conjure Henson's gentle manner of speech as well as the voices of the most famous Muppets, such as Kermit and Rowlf. Additionally, Heyborne is clear and measured while recounting Henson's upbringing, his sometimes strained family life, and the business partnerships that led to his creative endeavors, such as advertising, his famous television characters, and several movies. Heyborne's creative narration is an asset for the biography of a man who was an imaginative and productive creative force. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
