DEVON, Pa. - Dec. 3, 2015 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Sesame Place

Local author, Guy Hutchinson, will be available to sign copies of book

An addition to Arcadia Publishing’s series Images of Modern America is Sesame Place. The book by authors Guy Hutchinson and Christopher Mercaldo, with a foreword by Bob Caruso, uses 160 stunning images to illustrate the historic Pennsylvania theme park.

Since opening in 1980, Sesame Place theme park in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, has been the Northeast’s premier destination for fun, learning, and entertainment for children and adults alike. This wonderful playland has seen immense change and growth from opening day, ever adapting like Sesame Street itself to engage the newest generation of kids. Here, the original Muppets™ from Sesame Street created by Jim Henson, such as Big Bird, Grover, and Cookie Monster, as well as the newer residents, such as Elmo, Zoe, Murray, and Abby Cadabby, come right out of the television and into attractions, shows, parades, meet-and-greets, and more. In its 35th year of operation, Sesame Place has helped guests create countless memories. Explore and see in vivid color its development from concept to reality, its early days of interactive science exhibits and discovery, its growth and addition of watery fun, and its more recent additions of great theme park rides and attractions.

Highlights of Sesame Place include:

• The book features never before seen images.
• In addition to photos of Sesame Place in Pennsylvania, the book also includes rare photos of the Sesame Place park in Texas and the Sesame Place pavilion at Expo ’90 in Japan.
• The book includes photos of more than 50 former attractions from Sesame Place’s 35-year history.
