Pepe the King Prawn, a fiesty little crustacean from the coast of Spain, was introduced to audiences in 1996 as a part of the cast of "Muppets Tonight"; he has since become famous, successful, unavoidable, and a favorite of fans everywhere (he's especially a hit with the ladies, h'okay). Building on his fame, Pepe decided to sit down and write his own book. The new book, "It's Hard Out Here For a Shrimp: Life, Love & Living Large" by Pepe the King Prawn, is expected to hit bookstores later this fall and is full of Pepe's unique words of wisdom on life. Pepe's advice is guaranteed to make your life lively, hot, and very, very spicy!
From family and friendship to romance and roguery, Pepe's words are sure to delight readers of all ages. "It's Hard Out Here For a Shrimp" is being published by Hyperion Books and is planned to hit stores in Novemeber. The 176-page hardcover book will also feature a special introduction written by the one and only Kermit the Frog. "It's Hard Out Here For a Shrimp" is already available to pre-order through many online retailers. While the book is said to be authored by Pepe the King Prawn, the book was actually written by long-time Muppet writter Jim Lewis (who also penned Kermit's 2006 autobiography "Before you Leap"). This book is sure to be an entertaining and enlightening addition to any fan's collection. I will be sure to keep you updated as more information on this upcoming title surfaces.
