Welcome to Pawnee: The Ultimate Fan's Guide to Parks and Recreation

Leslie Knope, Ron Swanson, and the whole gang at Pawnee's favorite municipal department are here to put your life back in order.

This illustrated book is a celebration of everyone's favorite municipal mockumentary TV series, Parks and Recreation. Throughout its seven-season run, Parks and Recreation was nominated for a staggering fourteen Emmy Awards, and was named by Time magazine as the best TV show of the year. Although its final season aired five years ago, Parks and Recreation still gives us the same warm fuzzies (and full knee-slapping laughs) as when we saw it first.

In this loving homage to Parks and Recreation, you'll find plenty of interactive activities like The "Which Pawnee Municipal Department Do You Belong To?" Quiz; Leslie Knope's perfect waffle recipe; The Burt Macklin FBI (probably official) training manual; and Donna Meagle's tips for Mercedes upholstery maintenance. This book is also laden with trivia-tastic breakdowns of each season, and Parks and Recreation's myriad recurring guest characters (including Tammy 1, 2, and/or 3).

Pick up your copy now and relive the glory years we all lovingly spent in Pawnee. We leave you now with these immortal words from Pawnee's own bard, Ron Swanson: "I regret nothing. The end."
