Sitcom Character Picture Books
These Children's Book Covers Feature Hilarious Parks and Recreation

{SummaryTitle}

A new series by illustrator Jennifer Lewis will have fans of the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation grinning from ear to ear, as it depicts the Parks and Recreation characters as the protagonists in classic children’s picture books. For instance, one of Lewis’s book covers shows the incomparable Ron Swanson wearing his iconic rib bib and holding an umbrella as meatballs rain down from the sky.

The title of the book is, of course, ‘Swanson with a Chance of Meatballs,’ a take on the children’s book ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.’ The joke comes from Ron Swanson’s inexhaustible craving for meat and his staunch aversion to anything vegetable- or fruit-related.

With these book covers, Lewis has created a series evokes both nostalgia for childhood stories and a love for Parks and Recreation. She plays off of each character’s dominant traits and injects each of her works with subtle jokes, making this series the perfect tribute to a hilarious show and its devoted fan base.
