In this entertaining biography of actress, writer, entertainer, and puppeteer Shari Lewis (1933-1998) and her most famous creation, Lamb Chop, we get many personal anecdotes, as well as an in-depth look at how Shari and Lamb Chop found each other. It is narrated by Lewis's daughter, Mallory, and her publicist, Nat Segaloff, and also features appropriately snarky interjections from Lamb Chop, performed by Mallory. Overall, the audiobook offers remembrances from friends, acquaintances, and colleagues. In alternating sections, Segaloff and Lewis offer details highlighting the elaborate process involved in creating the Lamb Chop puppet, Shari's sometimes chaotic personal life, and her profound influence on changing the face of children's television by insisting that children should be entertained while being educated. Worthwhile listening for everyone. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
