    The Simpsons Book review

    It is an exiting book about the popular TV show. it has information on most of the episodes and is fun, especially for younger readers. However the information on each episode is too short.

    10-15 year old BOOK HOOK!

    I got this book in Moab, Utah around 1998 as a souviner. I'm 15 and ever since I've gotten the book I've read it every night before I go to bed. It has so many episodes I can usually find one I haven't read in a while and still get a laugh out of it. It also has some good things that you may have missed. A great stocking stuffer/present.

    Five Stars

    I actually got this book for my birthday unexpectedly. Once I picked it up, I really couldn't put it down. It's very funny, and I've even tried to watch an episode and follow along with the book. It really draws attention to obscure details.

    The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to our Favorite Book

    The Simpsons' first 8 seasons are reviewed in this book, and descriptions are given of episodes, Tracy Ulman shorts, characters, hilarious lines, songs, even the couch gags. I liked the format of the book, although the quotes sections were sort of sloppy, not all songs were put in, and character descriptions were given to characters not appearing in the show (ex.: Dr. Colossus in Who Shot Mr. Burns, Pt. 2). But any die-hard Simpsons fan would not really care, since the book shows how each episode effects the show (ex: first appearances of; revealed this episode).

    The Simpson Guide

    I liked this book because it has most episodes in it. The only downside is it hard to find episodes quickly.

    Simpson's Book Is Trivia Master's Dream

    This book is overflowing with the useless Simpsons information that a fan dreams of. It has everything, from episode summaries, to Marge's shoe size. I would very strongly recommend this book to anyone even remotely interested in the Simpsons. You won't be disappointed!
