Storyline

Lisa becomes disheartened when she learns the shocking truth behind the "tween lit" industry and her beloved fantasy novel characters. But Homer decides to cash in on the craze and forms a team to group-write the next "tween lit" hit, with the king of fantasy, Neil Gaiman, lending his expertise to the effort. After catching the eye of a slick industry publisher at the Springfield Book Fair, the team gets an advanced copy of their work and discovers that the corporate lit business is a bigger operation than they imagined.

One of Season 23's best,
9 July 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Book Job is a brilliant Simpsons episode with at storyline thats funny and smart,with a great guest appearance from Neil Gaiman.I enjoyed the shows reference to books like Harry Potter and Twilight and the references to heist movies.

When Lisa discovers the truth about book publishing,she struggles to write her own book and prove the publishers wrong.Meanwhile,Homer and Bart are doing a much better job than Lisa ad decide to pull a heist on the publishers by making a very successful book,with the help of Principal Skinner,Patty,Professor Frink,Moe and guest star Neil Gaiman. -DILLON HARRIS
