Most parents are very much aware of Elmo, the child-like fuzzy red Muppet who has become a favourite among Sesame Street's youthful audience. Far fewer people know the name Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who breathes the life and soul into Elmo. Something of a loner in his youth, Clash found a way to express himself when he discovered puppetry, and showed a remarkable talent for the art.
