If you are a particular fan of Lisa Simpson, like me, and feel she has been denied the limelight for too long, then you will love this book. Taking centre stage are Lisa's likes, dislikes, friends, life story, the contents of her DVD shelf and of course her highly opinionated internet blog!
This has obviously been a labour of love for the creators of the Simpsons, it is extremely detailed and pretty funny. The illustrations are perfect and the whole book is definitely of high quality. However, as the book is not all that long, I would say it is quite pricey at £7.99 (RRP), so I recommend you shop around and pick it up cheap (I found mine in a book remainder shop for £1.99).
Simpsons fans who have only a passing interest in Lisa, this is definitely not for you. You will probably find it boring, overly lengthy, self indulgent and one dimensional. Be warned!
