Review #275: The Krusty Book- Matt Groening

Title: The Krusty Book
Author: Matt Groening
Pages: 96
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Comic genius. TV legend. Household name. Compulsive gambler. Tax evader. Deadbeat dad. Illiterate. Krusty the Clown is all these things––and more!

Look beyond the cream pies and the seltzer bottles and meet the mensch behind the makeup. See what it takes to make the grade as a Krustyco product. Learn how to steal a joke and make it your own. Witness the milestones of Krusty's storied past. And along the way, dodge the paparazzi, avoid the tabloids, and go through Botox and detox with America's most beloved and "Krusty"–est clown.
Hey, Hey, Kids! It's another celebrity–authored bestseller, ghostwritten by someone you never heard of. It's...The Krusty Book.

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: This instalment was okay. I had the same issues with it being about everyone except who it was supposed to be about. I did like the little Krusty comics. Again this is a fun book to have on my shelf.
