Pre Pub Book Buzz: The Bob's Burgers Burger Book by Loren Bouchard & Cole Bowden

I don't watch very many cartoons, much to my husband's dismay. He loves them and I just don't. Except for Bob's Burgers.

If you haven't seen it, it centers around a family that runs a burger joint. And that's pretty much it. They war with the neighboring Italian joint (while Tina crushes on the oldest son), they war with the landlord (who owns everything in town), and they war with each other but it's always lighthearted and funny and there's ALWAYS a new closing credits song.

Plus, I think Tina may be my spirit animal.

The main characters are voiced by Kristen Schaal, H. John Benjamin, Eugene Mirman, Dan Mintz, and John Roberts (yes, that's right even with three female characters Schaal's Louise is the only one voiced by a woman - which I find HILARIOUS!), with guest voices from the likes of Sarah Silverman, Jenny Slate, Tim Meadows, Aziz Ansari, and a ton more. (Literally a ton - the cast list is a veritable who's who of the comedy world.)

One constant in the show is the daily special. Now, quite some time ago Cole Bowden started The Bob's Burgers Experiment - a blog featuring Bowden's take on each daily special. It caught the attention of Bob's Burgers fans as well as the folks behind the show and then the publishing world. Which is why we now have the awesomely fabulous upcoming The Bob's Burgers Burger Book: Real Recipes for Joke Burgers due out!!!

Here's the official description from Goodreads:

The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book gives hungry fans their best chance to eat one of Bob Belcher’s beloved specialty Burgers of the Day in seventy-five original, practical recipes. With its warm, edgy humor, outstanding vocal cast, and signature musical numbers, Bob’s Burgers has become one of the most acclaimed and popular animated series on television, winning the 2014 Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program and inspiring a hit ongoing comic book and original sound track album. Now fans can get the ultimate Bob’s Burgers experience at home with seventy-five straight from the show but actually edible Burgers of the Day. Recipes include the "Bleu is the Warmest Cheese Burger," the "Bruschetta-Bout-It Burger," and the "Shoot-Out at the OK-ra Corral Burger (comes with Fried Okra)." Serve the "Sweaty Palms Burger (comes with Hearts of Palm)" to your ultimate crush, just like Tina Belcher, or ponder modern American literature with the "I Know Why the Cajun Burger Sings Burger." Fully illustrated with all-new art in the series’s signature style, The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book showcases the entire Belcher family as well as beloved characters including Teddy, Jimmy Pesto Jr., and Aunt Gayle. All recipes come from the fan-created and heavily followed blog "The Bob’s Burger Experiment."
