Looking for the perfect way to treat yo’ self and the kids in your life? A children’s book inspired by Parks and Recreation is coming, so you can officially call off your search.
Parks and Recreation: Leslie for Class President, written by and illustrated by , follows a tiny, blue-eyed, blazer-wearing Leslie Knope as she runs for office. Unlike the NBC comedy, however, Knope isn’t running for city council. In the book, she has her sights set on a far more age-appropriate political position: class president of Pawnee Elementary.
As Knope campaigns alongside her pals Ann Perkins and Ben Wyatt, she encounters some familiar faces including Ron Swanson, Andy Dwyer, Tom Haverford, and Donna Meagle. According to a description of the book, Knope tries her best to appeal to voters, but things get a little tricky after she makes several campaign promises she might not be able to see through. Sounds like some classic Leslie chaos is about to unfold.
The book promises to be jam-packed with references to the show and include Easter eggs that only true Parks and Rec fans will pick up on. Will we see April and Jerry? Will a young Burt Tyrannosaurus Macklin, kid FBI agent, make an appearance? The possibilities feel endless.
The Pawnee-inspired children’s book is set to go on sale June 29, 2021. If you’re eager to secure your copy, though, you can pre-order the book today for $17.99.
If Parks and Recreation: Leslie for Class President looks familiar to you, that’s because it’s from the same iconic team that unveiled the adorable Office children’s book, The Office: A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary, which published on Sept. 29.
