Not only is this book realistic, it gives you what the TV series couldn't-a look inside Mr.Bean's mind. It contains an analysis of the sort of things he gets up to, which clubs he is in (or gets thrown out of!) and his opinion of various characters (including Irma Gobb, who appeared in the TV series). His childish mentality comes across, in parts such as his plan to drop dog mess on their owners, which is later revealed to have been seized by the police. If you are a fan of Mr.Bean, this book is definitely one for you. I was lucky enough to get it free from a relation, but would readily part with my cash to purchase it!
