The story is a spin on the classic "Gift of the Magi," with the impoverished Emmet and his Ma each making a sacrifice in the hopes that it will help them win the yearly talent show, and enough money to buy the other a Christmas gift. Purists, take note: There have been multiple edits of Emmet Otter released over the years, with minor but noticible changes to dialogue, and the addition/removal of scenes featuring Kermit the Frog.

What else would anyone familiar with Jim Henson & company's creative gifts expect! Yet having "grown up" with the television show along with our sons, this little book-based tale was a delightful change in content as well as characters. It was made known & recommended to us by a dear friend and we plan to share it with other friends.
The VHS tape was in very good condition and we're glad to have the "original" version with Kermit included!

This book and video are fantastic. Unfortunately today's little people are exposed to much more sophisticated presentations, but the moral of this story is love of family more than self!
