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!
