Family Guy: Stewie's Guide to World Dominationby Steve Callaghan
Synopses & Reviews
With episodes of Family Guy now running on Fox, Cartoon Network, and TBS, the Griffins are taking over the airwaves. Discover how you too can rule your world with this handbook from one of the show's most popular characters!
Stewie Griffin is a maniacal one-year-old baby genius who sees clearly what's wrong with the world and is hell-bent on staging a coup d'état that would turn absolute power over to him! The first tyrannical leader on his hit list is his mother, Lois — the leader of the "gynocracy" making his young life totally insufferable. There are others, too.
Hell, if it weren't for his lack of muscle tone, toilet training, and his need for parentally provided sustenance, Stewie would have already gained control over most of the third world.
But even as a toddler Stewie knows that in order to rule the world you must first understand it. So he has compiled a book of his own musings on a wide variety of subjects: work, politics, religion, family, love, childhood, parenting, education, and more. What results is an anarchist's delight.
Helped into print by Steve Callaghan, one of the television show's lead writers, Family Guy: Stewie's Guide to World Domination features articulate young Stewie at his acerbic best.
At first sight, the Griffins appear to be a normal blue-collar family from Quonochontaug, Rhode Island, but Peter (the family's loutish dad), Brian (the erudite, martini-swilling pet dog) and Stewie (the evil toddler son) truly set them apart from all others. Determined to achieve world domination from the moment he escaped his mother's womb (a.k.a. the cursed ovarian Bastille he was incarcerated in for nine grueling months), Stewie has finally deicded that to rule the world one must first understand it. At last, this true baby genius — and the most popular of the Griffin clan — talks openly about the peculiar dysfunction of his family and of the society we live in today. This book features his sometimes insightful, more often twisted, musings on family, love, parenting, preschool, work, pop culture, politics, and more.
Based on Fox's animated series. Determined to achieve world domination from the moment he escaped his mother's womb (a.k.a. the cursed ovarian Bastille he was incarcerated in for nine grueling months), Stewie has finally decided that to rule the world, one must first understand it.
For the first time ever a cancelled show has been resurrected on the basis of its cult following in syndication, on the internet and on DVD (Over 2.2 million DVDs sold to date!) and we've got the tie–in book authored by one of the show's hilarious lead writers and animators!
At first sight, the Griffens may seem like a normal blue collar family from Quonochontaug Rhode Island, but Peter (the family's loutish dad), Brian (the erudite, martini–swilling pet dog) and Stewie (the evil toddler son) set them apart from all others.
Now Stewie––a true baby genius and the most popular of the Griffen clan––speaks out. Having been hell bent on achieving world domination ever since he escaped the cursed ovarian Bastille he was incarcerated in for nine grueling months, he has finally decided that in order to rule the world we live in one must first understand it. Herewith are his musings on family, love, parenting, preschool, work, pop culture, politics and more. If only we knew then what Stewie knows now, adults everywhere could have defeated their mother's matriarchal tyranny and toppled the "gynocracy" she ruled over . . .and god knows what else!
This book is for the insufferable child in us all, eager to buck the ways of the old guard or just eager for a laugh.
