Attention, Parks and Rec fans: though the series itself is geared toward an older audience, the show is about to appeal to a younger generations thanks to a new children’s book coming out this June. ‘Parks and Recreation: Leslie for Class President’ will follow your favourite goofball, Leslie Knope (before she becomes the spirited Pawnee bureaucrat we know and love) as she makes a run for class president of Pawnee Elementary School. A Parks and Rec book for kids? Sign us up!
“Leslie Knope is running for class president!” reads the book’s description. “She campaigns all around Pawnee Elementary with her friends, Ann and Ben. In order to win over voters, though, Leslie starts to make some big promises . . . ones she’s not sure she can keep. Will Leslie be able to keep her word and become the best president Pawnee Elementary has ever seen? Filled with colourful, detailed illustrations and brimming with Easter eggs and nods to iconic moments from the show, this hilarious reimagining features a pint-sized cast. The story will introduce Parks and Recreation to a whole new generation and will teach them the importance of staying true to yourself. And waffles.” And she apparently runs into some pint-sized versions of Ron Swanson, Andy Dwyer, Tom Haverford, and Donna Meagle during her journey.
Sounds like some classic overly industrious Leslie chaos unfolds and we are here for it for all 40-pages of it! The theme of this Parks and Rec Book for kids couldn’t be any more perfect. Right?
