Review #257: The Lisa Book- Matt Groening

Title: The Lisa Book
Author: Matt Groening
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 96
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Pi carumba! You'll be livin' la vida Mensa with ... The Lisa Book.

Whether she's extolling the virtues of vegetarianism and the global village, raising awareness about the world's moral and social ills, or simply playing with her Malibu Stacy doll and dreaming of ponies, Lisa Simpson is a role model for the 21st century! Discover Lisa's lifelong ambitions, gather snappy answers to environmentally insensitive questions, uncover "the Truth" by logging onto her Internet blog, and follow along as she solves a real mystery. From the benefits of being Teacher's Pet to the secret correspondences of Commander–in–chief Lisa's presidential administration you will explore the inner workings of one of America's most progressive eight–year–old minds.

The Simpsons Library of Wisdom

Matt Groening, the creator of "The Simpsons," offers an on–going 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: Again, this was an informative book about the character Lisa haha. But like I mentioned in The Bart Book, it only talks about the main character (LIsa) for 50% of the book and the other 50% is about secondary characters. I did enjoy the comic throughout.
This is another fun book to be added to my collection.
