More About the Author

Matt Groening, creator and executive producer of Fox's Emmy Award®-winning series The Simpsons, made television history by bringing animation back to primetime and creating an immortal nuclear family. The Simpsons is the longest running primetime animated series in television history and is currently the longest-running comedy on television, having aired more than 400 episodes. In July 2007, the highly anticipated feature film The Simpsons Movie opened in theaters with worldwide grosses of more than $525 million to date.

Originally brought to life in 1987 for The Tracey Ullman Show, The Simpsons was Groening's amazing entry into the television animation world. Previously, he was best-known for his "Life in Hell" cartoon strip, an irreverent portrayal of love, work, school, life and relationships that currently appears in more than 250 newspapers worldwide and in a multitude of books.

Groening's other Emmy-Award®-winning creation, Futurama, launched on Fox in March 1999 and ran for five seasons. Last year Fox released the direct-to-DVD full-length original feature Futurama: Bender's Big Score. Three additional films will be released and the entire series with new episodes will air on Comedy Central this year.

In 1993, Groening formed Bongo Comics Group, where he serves as publisher of The Simpsons Library of Wisdom, Simpsons Episode Guides, Simpsons Comics, Bart Simpson Comics, Radioactive Man Comics, Simpsons Comics Treasure Trove, the annual Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror, Futurama Comics, more than 36 comic compilations, as well as instant classics including Bart Simpsons Guide to Life, The Simpsons Handbook, and The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album among others!

In addition to the many awards bestowed on his creations (including Emmys, Annies, and the prestigious Peabody Award), Groening was personally honored with the Rueben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year, the highest honor presented by the National Cartoonist Society. To date there are more than 14 million copies of books from HarperCollins in print throughout North America, the UK, and Australia based on The Simpsons, Futurama, and Life in Hell.

I read this book in about a half an hour. It includes many aspects of Ralph's life: a school field trip to the Springfield Airport (during which Ralph gets separated from the class and ends up on a plane to Paris), Ralph's top 40 list (includes Lisa Simpson twice and "putting stuff up my nose") and bottom 40 list (includes "the deep end of the sandbox" and "pointy kitties" [rats]). Ralph gives instructions for holiday crafts and gives advice a la Ann Landers. Also included is a progress report written by Ms. Hoover saying that improvement is needed in most areas as he has trouble adding and subtracting numbers above 16, that he "forgets how books work" and mentioned that he once tried to subtract on his hands by attempting to cut off his fingers. Poetry written by Ralph and his many moods are very funny.

There is a story about Wiggle Puppy that Ralph created, which is okay, but overall, it's a great book. Throughout most of the book, I was laughing so hard I was crying.

Ralph is my favorite of the minor characters that appear on "The Simpsons". This book is absolutely hilarious. It really captures the essence of Ralph and his happy-go-lucky, slightly clueless manner of meandering through life.

It's a short book, but it's extremely entertaining and I would definitely recommend it if you like Ralph Wiggum or the Simpsons.

This was by far the best book out of this collection that I have read. It was souly based on the character Ralph, unlike the other instalments. Also this one was the funniest. I wish they had all been this good.

I bought this book for my girlfriend who is a big Ralph Wiggum fan. When it arrived, I was shocked to see what a thorough exploration of the character it was. I'm not saying it's all canon in terms of the show, as i saw some complaints that there was stuff in this book that wouldn't make sense to the Ralph character (such as his love for Lisa) due to them "breaking up" in a past episode, but come on, that's a hogwash complaint. The whole point of this book is to entertain, and it does so in spades, so it comes highly recommended. And this is coming from a huge 'The Simpsons' fan himself.

Oh, and by the way, my girlfriend loved it, too.
