These are brilliant books to get your children reading.
Once they read one they will want to read more and so on.
This is a cheap way to get a whole lot of Simpsons for a good price especially if you buy it second hand.

.

The stories are

"Don't Cry for Me Jebediah."
"The Artist Formerly Known as Bart":
"Stand and Deliverance
"Little Big Mart
"Bart De Triomphe":
"Citizen Shame

Now the technical sell.
The really big pay off is that it these books gets kids reading.

As a Teacher I'm always trying to encourage children to read especially sad to say mostly boys who see reading as un cool and sadly they often have real problems reading so vicious circle. They fall further and further behind. The interest level goes too.

Now to comics. They look at the pictures follow the action then find that if they read the speech bubbles it makes it more interesting which leads to children valuing reading for enjoyment which can't be a bad thing.

Can it?

If you have a reluctant reader and these tend more to be boys then you can't do better than getting them a book that is 'cool' to read in front of their friends has a high interest level and is enjoyable

Simpsons on parade comic was the fifth one i got and it totaly outbeat the rest. There are four big stories and a few little ones. My favourite is the one about Mayor Quimby and the magical washing powder! When The parade comes to town Lisa is so exited, but to her disbelief, none of the rest of Springfiels is, i suppose this story was ok. Most of the little comics come after this and then there is the one with the mayor and marge. Marge gets herself on TV because of her washing powder formular and she washes all the stains off a really tough piece of work. News presenter Kent Brockman isnt pleased to be forced off air so he gets his revenge, Marge and guess who are seen kissing. Then guess who goes along with the story. When marge finds out she is devestated, but not so devestated she doesnt have time to get her revenge, live on TV. It is so funny! The one about two policemen, one of them not being springfiels well known guv is the worst, it lets the book down just a tiny bit. On the last story Sideshow Bob desides the children need seat belts, when he is refused he desides to bomb the bus if it goes to fast or to slow and send little Bart Simpson into Space. This is for sure the best book i have read in a long time. On the other hand, the short stories are not so good and in my version the pictures where a tiny bit faded, but apart from that an brilliant buy!

i am a big fan of the tv show, and i love the comics too. this collection of stories is a must for anyone who loves the show, or anyone who wants to meet the characters for the first time.
