The Office is one of the most beloved shows of today’s generation. It was s funny ride to be on. It was filled with a unique warmth that we get from legendary shows like Friends, Will and Grace and Parks and Recreation. We fall in love with the characters because of how amazingly close to our hearts they become. The Office had one of the best ensembles to date for an American show. We loved Jim and Pam’s love story, we could never hate Dwight for his eccentricities and amidst all the craziness rooted for Michael to get his happy ever after.
The Office premiered in 2003 running for 9 seasons. Its appearance in Netflix gave it a new legion of fans who became equally passionate about the show. And now a new generation yet again will be introduced to the show with the help of a children’s book based on the Dunder Muffin employees.
Yes you heard it right the book will follow all of our favourite characters as children in the elementary school. It will be based onMichael’s quest to become the best line leader in the world.
This book will be filled with Easter eggs and iconic scenes from the show, making it exciting for adult readers as well.
