Attention, The Office fans: though the series itself is definitely appropriate for an older audience, the show is about to appeal to the youngest generations thanks to a new children's book coming out this October. The Office: A Day at Dunder Mifflin Elementary ($18) will follow Michael Scott decades before he ever becomes the self-anointed "World's Best Boss." He's trading his iconic mug for a water bottle with his childhood aspirations written all over it: "World's Best Line Leader." Unsurprisingly, however, he doesn't know anything about leading the line, so he has to learn to ask for help.

Although the book — which features the most precious illustrations of the characters in pint-size form — is aimed at children, it contains plenty of Easter eggs from the series for parents to catch.
