Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some believe that the key to humor is timing. Others think it lies in a slightly distorted presentation of the familiar. E. B. White thought that humor ceased to exist upon close examination. But if anyone has humor figured out, it's Stephan Pastis. His philosophy is written in black felt pen on the bulletin board in his home office. It reads: 'When in doubt, kill cute things.'"

Lock up your valuables. Stockpile your ammunition. Sandbag your bunker. The familiar foursome of Rat, Pig, Goat, and Zebra-joined now by the fraternity of Zeeba Zeeba Eata crocodiles are here to storm the ramparts of humor in The Ratvolution Will Not Be Televised.

In this fourth collection from the award-winning comic strip Pearls Before Swine, Stephan Pastis deploys all the weapons of his comic arsenal in an all-out attack on the animal (and human) imperfections he sees around him. The result is a collection jam-packed with the sharp-edged humor that has made Pearls Before Swine one of the most successful comic strips running in newspapers today.

Just remember: As The Ratvolution Will Not Be Televised makes clear, Pearls Before Swine takes no prisoners.

We warned you.

About the Author

Stephan Pastis grew up reading Peanuts and watching everything from Bugs Bunny to Mr. Bill episodes on Saturday Night Live. Despite such influences he became an attorney and withstood countless lawyer jokes for more than nine years, all the while doodling on the side. Pearls Before Swine was launched in 1999 on comics.com, and soon after Stephan regained his senses and returned to his roots. He lives in the San Francisco area with his wife and two children.
