It is the age of the reboot. Or at least it seriously feels like it! While we’re currently excited for the Charmed reboot, we can see why so many viewers feel overwhelmed by the amount of that-thing-that-ended-is-getting-resurrected on TV. Which is why we’re here to offer a new kind of reboot we very much want to see: TV characters we’d love to see star in PI novels.

It’s Chris Pratt’s birthday on June 21 and all we want to do is sit around and binge Parks and Rec all day. But that would be ignoring his greater canon. (Oh wow just think about Andy Dwyer’s reaction to the phrase “greater canon.” Priceless.) So instead of playing Mouse Rat’s greatest hits until our brains explode, we’re sharing some Chris Pratt-specific book recommendations. Or should we say, book recommendations for our favorite Chris Pratt characters.

Incredibles 2 is about to hit the big screen, bringing one of our favorite super-families back to delight a new generation. The original Incredibles introduced fans to this suburban family with a secret — they are all natural superheroes! The super-strong Mr. Incredible and his super-flexible wife Elastigirl team up with their two children, speedster Dash and invisible girl Violet, to take down a supervillain (and leave the incredibly powerful superbaby at home with a sitter). It’s a sweet, funny movie, and one that plays with the idea of family dynamics affecting a superhero mission.

Option 1: Designate one hand for page turning and one hand for donut holding—never switch.
Option 2: Go the prim and proper way and eat your donut with a fork and knife, a method even a Queen would approve of—or Meghan Markle. Now on to the important stuff: which donut to eat with what book?
