The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia is an ancient and magical tome, or maybe it's just designed to look that way. The book explores the characters and situations that occupy the popular Cartoon Network series. There are few cartoons as imaginative or strange as Adventure Time, in which a boy and his dog fight evil in various forms, including an Ice King, monsters, demons, giants, and the hideous creature known as The Lich.

As a fan of Adventure Time, I expected more from this, but it's written by Marceline the Vampire Queen's evil father, so the descriptions of most characters are not fun-loving and objective. He hates everything that is happy, so he mostly just criticizes everyone and everything in The Land of Oo. This, however, might be more amusing for younger fans of the show (I'm in college...so...yeah).
