Hit offbeat sitcom The Office is getting revamped for the younger generation with the children’s book, The Office: A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary. 

Written by Robb Pearlman and illustrated by Melanie Demmer, the book plays on a memorable moment from Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) when he appoints himself as the “World’s Best Boss,” even buying himself a mug with the title. For the elementary school version of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company Inc. boss, however, Scott challenges himself to be the “World’s Best Line Leader” — even printing it on his water bottle:

“Michael Scott is Line Leader at Dunder Mifflin Elementary! It’s a very big job, but Michael is sure he can live up to the “World’s Best Line Leader” title printed on his water bottle. There’s just one problem–Michael doesn’t know how to lead the line. Filled with colorful, detailed illustrations and brimming with Easter eggs and nods to iconic moments from the show, this hilarious reimagining features a pint-sized cast.

The story will introduce The Office to a whole new generation and will teach them that everyone needs to ask for help sometimes. Even Line Leaders.”

According to the book’s description, the story will include child-friendly references to the NBC show with fan-favorite characters appearing throughout, including Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), Jim Halpert (John Krasinski), Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) and Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling).

The Office: A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary will be released on October 6, just in time for the show’s 15th anniversary.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Disney CEO Bob Iger surprisingly stepped down from his role.
