The early official 'Simpsons' books really were very entertaining, and 1998's 'The Simpsons Guide to Springfield' is a good companion piece to the excellent The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album. Whilst this one isn't quite on the same level, it still offers plenty of laughs within it's pages.

Like an extended brochure, this parody of a travel guide takes you on a guided tour of Springfield, offering a brief-potted history of all the places, events, and historical happenings, all written in a predictably tongue-in-cheek manner, punctuated with comments from the residents themselves. If you're already a big fan of the show, then I believe that it's this audience who will enjoy it the most, if you can ignore the fact that a few things that happened in the series were exaggerated on in the writing, or completely made up for the needs of this fun little book.

The presentation of the publication is very pleasing on the eye, with plenty of colourful pictures and various memorabilia to illustrate it's 127 pages. If you fancy a giggle, then buy a copy of this 'Guide to Springfield', sit down, whilst you sit there wearing a smile, as well as being educated and informed about the life and times of this wonderful little town.

With information on all the top spots in Springfield, commentary from the residents, Springfieldian artifacts and a warning that visitors should take their own food and water when visiting, this is a very clever take on the usual tour guide. Whether you love poring over details from the show or just enjoy a little light reading, this is a must for any Simpsons fan. The book's only downfall is that, with all that's been happening on the show these past four years, it's now out of date, but don't let that put you off too much.

It is really good. It does not even need me to write in this box it is so recommendable. It incorporates all the humour of the Simpsons with some witty language inside the book. If any of you have read the Simpsons books before you will know what I mean.,.

This book was interesting as it showed all the attractions of Springfield which have been seen in episodes of the show. I didn't give it 5 stars though because sometimes it would get a little boring.
