Publisher Comments:

Enter Stone Soup Land, Where Uproar RulesStone Soup is a funny, irreverent and sympathetic nationally syndicated cartoon strip read by more than 7 million people every day. The all-too-real humor mirrors much of today's family life while cheering us on. The extended, blended Stone family lives in a household where only the agile survive. The cast includes working-mom sisters Val and Joan, 13-year-old Holly, nine-year-old Alix and two-year-old Max; Gramma who lives upstairs; nice-guy neighbor Wally, a Zen motorcycle cop, and more. This collection features some reader favorite Stone Soup storylines: Val and Officer Jackson — The romance continues.Andy comes to visit and stays — Wally's nephew Andy comes for the summer, but ends up as a permanent resident in his Uncle's life.Joan and Wally's wedding — After years of over the fence romance and disappointment, the big day finally arrives.Biscuit falls in love with a bunny slipper — Need we say more?"Eliot doesn't sugar-coat the problems her characters face. She reflects our culture and contemporary family life in a way that is very wise, but very funny." — Roz Warren, Editor of The Best Contemporary Women's Humor, Women's Glib, and numerous other humor collections

About the Author

Stone Soup is a comic-strip based on my own experiences as a single mom. I create characters and situations out of what happens in the world around me, hoping for authenticity that will strike home with my readers. Jan Elliot began as an overworked single mom and became a talented cartoonist. Jan's work enhances the lives of comic-loving families everywhere.
