Review #256: The Bart Book- Matt Groening

Title: The Bart Book
Author: Matt Groening
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 96
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: The Bart Book is now being released in hardback, as part of the ongoing series: The Simpsons Library of Wisdom.

Bart Simpson, the much–maligned, misunderstood, under–appreciated 'underachiever', comes clean and (God help us!) it's worse than we thought. Now the truth can be told at last as Bart offers up his school survival guide, secret codes, pullable pranks, dream tattoos, favourite El Barto 'tags', and the Christmas list to end all lists (and future visits from Santa). It's the worst, we mean . the best book ever!

In The Simpsons Library of Wisdom, Matt Groening, the creator of 'The Simpsons', offers an ongoing series of portable and quotable books that will eliminate the need for all religions and philosophies, exalt man's role in the universe and make the world a better place ... sort of. No other television show in history has commented so freely and so humorously on modern times, and there seems to be no end in sight for the sharp satire and pointed parody that 'The Simpsons' serves up every night of the week all around the world.

Review: This instalment was better than Comic Book Guy but not as good as Marge. I felt like there wasn't enough Bart in the Bart book. 50% of it was talking about other characters, not that I didn't enjoy what I learned about them, but this is the Bart book not the other secondary characters book.

Despite that, this was still an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading the rest.
