About The Book

This illustrated book is a celebration of everyone’s favorite municipal mockumentary TV series, Parks and Recreation. Throughout its seven-season run, Parks and Recreation was nominated for a staggering 14 Emmy Awards, and after its third season in 2012 was named by TIME magazine as the best TV show of the year. Although its final season aired five years ago, Parks and Recreation still gives us the same warm fuzzies (and full knee-slapping laughs) as when we saw it first.

In this book, a loving homage to Parks and Recreation, you’ll find plenty of interactive activities like: The ‘Which Pawnee Municipal Department Do You Belong To?’ Quiz; Leslie Knope’s Perfect Waffle Recipe; The Burt Macklin FBI (Probably Official) Training Manual; and Donna Meagle’s Tips for Mercedes Upholstery Maintenance. This book is also laden with trivia-tastic breakdowns of each season, and Parks and Recreation’s myriad recurring guest characters (including Tammy 1, 2 and/or 3).

Pick up your copy now and relive the glory years we all lovingly spent in Pawnee. We leave you, now, with these immortal words from Pawnee’s own Bard, Ron Swanson: “I regret nothing. The end.”
