This is a hilarious book written by Pawnee's own Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler)! Explore the rich history of Pawnee, Indiana, and find out why paying a visit to this little Midwestern town is worth your while. The attention to detail in this comedic book is astonishing, and one need only take a peek at the actual advertisements in the main back of the book to see why--simply amazing! A must have for fans of Parks and Recreation.

This book was awesome. If you love Parks and Rec (the show) and have seen every episode, you will love this book! The writing styles of each character are exactly how the character would talk, and there are some pretty funny stories about Pawnee.

For a show that's so well-written & tightly edited, this book has too many jokes that go on a little too long. It could have been better.
