fullDescription
The New York Times bestselling account of the story behind one of the most influential, durable, and beloved shows in the history of television: Sesame Street, moving to HBO this fall
"Davis tracks down every Sesame anecdote and every Sesame personality in his book . . . Finally, we get to touch Big Bird's feathers." —The New York Times Book Review

Sesame Street is the longest-running-and arguably most beloved- children's television program ever created. Today, it reaches some six million preschoolers weekly in the United States and countless others in 140 countries around the world.
Street Gang is the compelling, comical, and inspiring story of a media masterpiece and pop-culture landmark. Television reporter and columnist Michael Davis-with the complete participation of Joan Ganz Cooney, one of the show's founders-unveils the idealistic personalities, decades of social and cultural change, stories of compassion and personal sacrifice, and miraculous efforts of writers, producers, directors, and puppeteers that together transformed an empty soundstage into the most recognizable block of real estate in television history.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

        December 15, 2008
        Davis, a former editor and columnist for "TV Guide", traces not only the beginnings of the show loved by children around the world but also the history of children's television prior to the birth of "Sesame Street". He profiles the major players responsible for creating the landmark program, like Joan Ganz Cooney, the founder of the Children's Television Workshop, and Jim Henson, the creator of the Muppets. Davis also explores earlier children's shows, like "Captain Kangaroo", where many of the people who gave "Sesame Street" such a unique look and appeal got their start. If you want a comprehensive history of "Sesame Street" itself and how it has evolved over the past almost 40 years, this is not the book. If you want to examine the vast influences that made the show so successful and the people both behind the scenes and in front of the camera, then this is perfect. This compelling work will give readers wonderful flashes of nostalgia. For all reference and browsing collections. [See Prepub Alert, "LJ" 10/15/08.]Jeff Ayers, Seattle P.L.
