This illustrated book is a celebration of everyone’s favourite municipal mockumentary TV series, Parks and Recreation. Throughout its seven-season run, Parks and Recreation was nominated for a staggering fourteen Emmy Awards, and 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 unofficial (yet adoring) homage to Parks and Recreation, you’ll find plenty of interactive activities like the “What Kind of Government Employee Are You?” Quiz; Leslie and Ann’s guide to hosting the perfect Galentine’s Day; The Best of The Duke Silver Trio; and Tom & Donna’s Treat Yo Self manifesto. 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.”
