    Another great Simpons volume. In this one the Simpsons put their own spin on famous stories throughout history. They go after Fairy Tales, Aesop's Fables, Greek Myths, Bible Stories, Shakespeare and more. As always the art looks like it's from a Simpsons episode so no worries there. Fun stuff.

    Bart gets to meet the most famous underachiever of all time. Abraham Simpson finds it very hard to compete with god when he has a son like Homer Simpson my most favorite part is when they are in the kingdom. I recommend this book to people that like comics.

    A fun read. A few clunkers in the mix, but some of the stories and jokes were genuinely clever. Wish the show was still as well-written as the comics!

    It's special to have the stories under one theme and somehow linked to each other... The creativity is well shown with Simpsons version of a lot of classics :)

    Wasn't my favorite, I liked the Big Bad Book of Bart Simpson better. But it was still good. Wasn't my favorite, I liked the Big Bad Book of Bart Simpson better. But it was still good.

    I picked this one up for me. Yes, I like the Simpsons even though I don't watch regularly. I was just too tempted to see how the Simpsons would skewer the great stories from the past, and I wasn't disappointed. The Simpsons start with the ancient Greeks, from the gods to Aesop. Moving across the continent, they give a hilarious twist to fairy tales and nursery rhymes. Aladdin washes his hands of the genie in "Arabian Nuts." Old Bill Shakespeare may be rolling in his grave by the end of his plays I picked this one up for me. Yes, I like the Simpsons even though I don't watch regularly.

Old Bill Shakespeare may be rolling in his grave by the end of his plays in comic form. Finally, Bart goes to Sunday School, where somehow, the Prodigal Son ends up at the Tower of Babel. I laughed my way through this collection, but the jokes are much funnier if you already know the stories.

    The bible, Greek myth, Shakespeare....as the great philosopher Homer said so eloquently, “Booorrrrring!” Well with this exciting volume, all those long winded “Wherefore art thous” and “Thou shalt nots” are simplified into colourful panels with a few bite sized words per panel, with all your favourite Simpsons characters standing in. Noah’s Ark is great, Henry 5th with Professor Frink as Henry, Bart doing the Bard, King Moe-mar Shahryar, “Apu Baba and the Four Thieves” and “Sinbart The Sailor”, The bible, Greek myth, Shakespeare....as the great philosopher Homer said so eloquently, “Booorrrrring!” Well with this exciting volume, all those long winded “Wherefore art thous” and “Thou shalt nots” are simplified into colourful panels with a few bite sized words per panel, with all your favourite Simpsons characters standing in.

    meh. silly. Normally I find the Simpsons silliness to be amusing, but this collection didn't do much for me. It was clever how many references they could work into a story, whether Shakespeare, the Bible, Greek myth, or any of the other genres being skewered. Maybe I just don't appreciate those genres being skewered? I don't know. I think it might have been funnier animated/ on TV. As it was, I read a bit each night before bed, to help me sleep like a baby. Yawn.

    Od komiksových Simpsonů jsem moc nic nečekal (resp. čekal jsem obvyklou úroveň) a velmi příjemně mě to překvapilo. Komiks paroduje klasické příběhy od bible přes pohádky a Shakespeara až po Ezopa a je to fakt prča. Některý kousky jsou slabší, některý naopak výborný. Jako celek super věc. Moc si to nedovedu představit přeložené, protože to hodně stojí na slovních hříčkách.

    This book has many different types of stories in the one book such as Julius Caesar, arab stories, etc. This book was really funny because of the jokes and how they changed the stories. I would recommend this book to people that watch the shows or like to laugh.

    This is a good Simpson-ized take on classic stories and fables: from Aesop to Shakespeare, to Bible stories to Arabian tales, this is a pretty funny way of learning all the old stories from the past. Great for Simpsons fans, too, including me.

    I really enjoyed this book. One reason I enjoyed this book was because the author Matt Groening use fantastic images that match the text in the book. This graphic novel has multiple scenes which is a nice and different way of writing comics usually.

    sometimes, you have to take a break from reading books and read a comic book. this is one I picked up at the library. it served its purpose, although I found it a little boring for the Simpsons.
