    Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons

  • “Nancy Cartwright, ebullient and high energy enough to light up her native Ohio, tells all. Simpsons fans will revel in the insider information; biography fans will enjoy the memoirs of an actress who committed to her dream and saw it through with spectacular results…A feel-good, rollicking listen.”

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 St. Murse | 11/4/2011

    " Great stuff about how The Simpsons episodes are created from script to air and her mentorship with Daws Butler (Yogi Bear, Snagglepuss, Elroy Jetson, etc.) from a true fan of the show, but the writing throughout is rather leaden. Also, the Scientology stuff is just pathetic. Still, worth a read. "
