This book is a compilation of 16 festive tales from The Simpson's and co.

The contents of this book are:

Firstly, as always, a dedication to Lisa's first cat Snowball 1 ~
"As this snow sculpture thaws on the first warm day, so will our hearts melt whenever we think of you."
Then there's an introduction by Comic Book Guy that begins "Salutations from the Captain's chair of the Android's Dungeon."

The stories in this book are ~
HOMER FOR THE HOLIDAYS: Christmas stories in July? it can only be Grandpa Simpson!
ANGRY DAD IN "WRECK THE HALLS": A Bart Simpson story! {angry Dad = Homer.}
THE SPRINGFIELD ELEMENTARY WINTER GATHERING: or "Happy non-specific semi festive winter gathering!"
ITCHY & SCRATCHY IN "IT'S A WONDERFUL KNIFE": 28 pages of mutilation!
ANGRY DAD IN "RESOLUTION DISSOLUTION": A story by Bart "Beetle Bailey eats my shorts" Simpson!
MERRY CHRISTMOE'S: No minors admitted without fake I.D!
A SPRINGFIELD CHRISTMAS CAROL: Or the 36th showing of The Happy Little Elves Save Christmas, which will the networks choose? {as featured in the BEST OF THE SIMPSONS magazine #25.}

HO HO HO from the Simpsons! Holiday cheer is here! 27 Nov. 2006
By L. Aiello - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Simpsons 'Holiday Humdinger' is an excellent collection of comics, and this one in particular hits on many different levels. Not only are we seeing the main characters that we love placed in crazy holiday situations, but a lot of careful attention was poured into clever in-jokes and homage's to past characters and episodes. Since the Simpsons brand comics usually play out like a half hour episode, their comic production values have been excellent. The flow of the story, the perfect colors, the likeness of the characters....all of these elements make the comic strips come together in a great way.

In the case of this holiday edition, not only do we get the longer stories but we also get much more: A few two-page spreads of Christmas silliness courtesy of the Springfield Elementary gym, the power plant, and the comic book store. In these bits, there is so much going on at once that is takes a 2nd and 3rd glance to make sure you don't miss all the laughs. We are also treated to holiday "cards," coming from many Springfield hot spots and major players. Fans of the series will think back to some past TV episodes to make the connection with some of these holiday greetings! There are a few Angry Dad cameos as well! And Christmas would certainly feel empty without Itchy & Scratchy, so get ready for a great story involving our favorite cat and mouse.

As with many other Simpsons collections, many of these comics may have appeared in the monthly editions in the past. So beware if you do not like the idea of getting repeat material. Otherwise, this is an absolute holiday treat ! Enjoy!

One of the funniest books to read. Packed with delightful humor to bring smiles the entire Christmas season. Difficult to put down. Can read it again and laugh just as much.

A must have!

Such a pretty book. It's bigger than the other comic books and it comes with glossy pages. Definitely worth the price!

I love the show, hate this book 20 Dec. 2008
By Tom Trails - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Simpsons is one of the funniest TV shows ever. It doesn't translate well to paper at all in this book. This is not funny. It reads like some wannabe comedy writer trying to imitate the Simpsons. The book's credits list Matt Groening as the the "publisher". It lists 7 writers, none of whom is Groening. It also lists a creative director, art director, and multiple "contributing artists", none of whom are Groening. In fact, comparing the list of writers for this book to the list of the show's writers on Wikipedia, none of the show's writers contributed to this book. Maybe that's why it doesn't feel like the show at all. Same characters, lame dialogue, not funny. Too bad.
