This book is dedicated to the many talented special effects artists whoinspired us when we were kids, our parents who helped us along the waywhen we were young, and our own children who stayed behind while wewent off to Prague to play with our monsters. Thank you Camille, Devon,Grace, Bella, David, Taylor, and Connor. And to our wives, Alaine and Tami, who were with us and supported usalong the way and through all the years as we each matured from promdates to grown men who play with puppets, this book is lovingly dedicated.
