Review #255: The Marge Book- Matt Groening

Title: The Marge Book
Author: Matt Groening
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 96
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Marge Simpson, the woman with the impossibly blue and improbably high hairdo, is a complex woman with an inner life, hopes and dreams, and an incorrigible family that she holds together with a healthy homemade helping of common sense. Join the coupon-clipping queen of discount shopping at the nearby Sprawl-Mart, at a meeting of the school PTA, in the middle of a bodice-ripping romance novel, at a theatrical performance of her one-woman show, or in her crusade against cartoon violence, domestic strife, and suburbia's quiet life of desperation . . . or at least her desperate hop that no one will hold anything that Homer or Bart does against her personally.
Review: This instalment of The Simpsons Library of Wisdom was much better than Comic Book Guy's Book of Pop Culture. I learned a lot about Marge that I didn't know. Did you know that Marge writes a blog about Maggie? Neither did I. Or that she loves to read romance novels? Well now we do haha. I could really connect with Marge and I loved all her sneaky tips to get her family to help her with chores and to get them to eat their food. 
I can't wait to see what the rest of the books will teach me haha.
