セサミストリートを作り上げたジム・ヘンソンの伝記。

He was so energetic that others caught his energy. He enjoyed and respected creative people. He didn't try to squash ideas just because they weren't his. People often stayed to work with him for years or even decades.

p37

Don built a long roadway made of Slinky toys and hollow plastic balls for seven mice that were office pets.

p40
7匹のねずみのペットに!

Jim let his kids doodle colorful creatures on the walls of their house and always encouraged his children to be creative. The family wound up with lots of pets --- eight cats, six rabbits, two dogs, guinea pigs, and a ferret.

p46
wind up with 結果として~になる
楽しそうですね。

Inside, there was a fan to help him stay cool and a TV monitor so he could see himself. Caroll Spinney has performed as Big Bird for over forty years.

p52
中にカメラを入れて自分の動きを確認していたのですね。

Some friends thought Jim was very much like Kermit, easygoing and good at running things. Jim thought Kermit was sometimes bolder than he was. Jim thought he was more like Rowlf. Jim always operated Kermit himself. He sang Kermit's song "Bein' Green," which became popular. It's about how being green may seem unexciting but it's really wonderful. Jim wanted all children to know they were wonderful, too.

p54
bold [bould] 勇敢な、厚かましい

When he liked something, he might call it "lovely." If he didn't like something, he wouldn't say so. He'd say, "Interesting." Or "hmm." And he'd offer suggestions to help. He always spoke softly, and moved his hands a lot to describe something.

p59
"Interesting."って、ほんとにあんまり賛同できないときにも使うのですね。
面白いと思ったときにも使うらしいですけど。

She was pushy and knew what she wanted --- to be famous and to marry Kermit. And she went after both of her goals, batting her eyelashes and giving karate chops. Frank Oz performed Miss Piggy. He thought that part of the reason she became so popular might have been because of the women's rights movement.

p63
Miss Piggyって私はあまり馴染みがないのですが、
かなり昔からいたのですね。

Kermitと結婚したくて、有名になりたくて、

The swamp log sat on top of a big, metal tank under a pool of water on a film set. Jim was inside the tank, with a small TV between his knees to watch Kermit. He stuck both hands up through rubber sleeves to work Kermit's head and banjo-strumming arm. S pump kept Jim supplied with air, and rescue divers were nearby in case of trouble. The Muppet Movie came out in 1979 and was a big hit!

p75
手作りですねー。見てみたいな。

His son Brian read aloud part of a letter Jim had written for his children. It said: "Please watch out for each other and love and forgive everybody. It's a good life, enjoy it."
His daughter Cheryl read other words of her father: "When I was young, my ambition was to be one of the people who makes a difference in this world. My hope still is to leave this world a little bit better than it was when I got here."
To this day, the Muppets are beloved around the world. So is Jim Henson.
