Jarrod Fairclough – Good news for lovers of reading (I’ve got three books on the go at the moment!). Penguin Random House have announced a new book, in what sounds like a possible new series. Entitled ‘Muppets Meet the Classics: The Phantom of the Opera’, the book will cast Kermit, Miss Piggy, Uncle Deadly and our other favorites in the roles from the popular musical!
The official description reads:
What do you get when you cross the Muppets and the classics? A monster hit! Join Kermit, Miss Piggy, Uncle Deadly, and the other Muppets as they bring this gripping tale of mystery and suspense to life in their own hilarious way.
This classic tale of love, intrigue, and jealousy at the Paris Opera House, which has thrilled readers, musical lovers, and movie goers for more than a century, has now been reimagined with the cast of the Muppets. Readers will gasp, cry, laugh, and laugh again as Kermit (as Raoul), Miss Piggy (as Christine), Uncle Deadly (as the phantom), and the chickens (as the ballet corps) give a whole new meaning to the word “classic.” This imaginative tale is sure to win the hearts of all Muppets fans, as well as fans of literary classics.
The book is available for pre-order now through Amazon for $12.99, and according to the official site comes in at a whopping 288 pages! Could more be on the way? I can’t wait to see Mr Poodlepants cast in a retelling of Rent.
