Kermit’s Garden of Verses is "a collection of poems written from the point of view of Kermit the Frog about his fellow Muppets," each poem of which is accompanied by a character or scene illustration.

The title is a spoof of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1885 volume, A Child's Garden of Verses.

This was meant to have been one of many volumes of books filled with poetry based on the Muppets, however sales of this title did not meet expectations and a contract with Prelutsky was cancelled. [1]
