Graphic Novel Spotlight - The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow

The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow adapted by Roger Langridge

Today's selection is unusual in that it was originally intended to be a television special. Created by Jim Henson, it was storyboarded, puppet concepts designed, and songs written before it was shelved. Langridge got permission to take those concepts and scripts and adapt them into a graphic novel. Henson's influence is clear in the character designs and the plot. It plays out well on the page and will appeal to young readers, especially those with at least a passing familiarity with the Muppets.
