The book is formatted like an interview, which gives it an exclusive, straight-from-the-horse’s-mouth feel, and you’ll feel like an NBC insider by the time you reach the end. Through the eyes of the cast and crew, you can see what went on in the writing process, plus some interesting information about the show’s final two seasons. It gives a fuller picture of the culture of the show and reminds the reader how and why it has such a rich longevity of cultural value.

You can get your hands on the book at the end of the month, and until then enjoy your re-watch of the hit series on Netflix.

Check Out The Outrageous New ‘The Office’ Kids Book

How would you feel about reading a book meant for kids?  What if I told you that the children’s book is themed around the old show The Office?  Would you want to read it then?

Robb Pearlman recently wrote a new book titled The Office: A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary, with illustrations by Melanie Demmer.  The book is about Michael Scott on a journey to become the “World’s Best Line Leader.”  He and his fellow students in Ms. Levinson’s class spend the day working together to make the perfect line.  The problem for Michael is that he doesn’t know how to lead the line.  He learns that he must ask for help, and this is the lesson in the book: don’t be afraid to ask for help when it’s needed.

 

The book is filled with wonderful, colorful illustrations and is filled to the brim with Easter eggs that fans of the now-canceled show will understand.  The book appeals to all different types of readers despite being marketed as a children’s book.

With the show’s 15th anniversary coming up, Pearlman’s book serves as an homage to the show and proves how it has thrived.  If you’d like to pick up this book, you can check out the link above!
