Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"There's an artful, edgy rebellion being waged in the funny pages, and one of its brightest revolutionaries is Stephan Pastis." --Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"The cartoon Pearls Before Swine is written by a psychopath." --reader complaint, Wichita Eagle

This collection of Pearls Before Swine makes a happy return to home and hearth as only these scamps can. An iconic portrait that captures the essence of modern life, Pearls Before Swine is a heartwarming American original.

A gifted storyteller with a sick sense of humor, Stephan Pastis is rapidly becoming a master of the cartoon art form. His pearls of wisdom are sly and subversive, smart and shocking. And incredibly funny.

It's a jungle out there. The only way to survive is with friends, a thick skin, and, a good dose of cynicism.

* A sense of humor, along with a little animal instinct, is just what The Saturday Evening Pearls offers.

* Pearls Before Swine was named Best Comic Strip in 2004, and again in 2007 by the National Cartoonists Society.

Synopsis:

"Pearls Before Swine" is the hilarious comic strip tale of two friends: arrogant, egotistical Rat and slow-witted Pig. Smart, witty, and painfully honest, this cartoon mocks the flaws and shortcomings of human nature with cynical humor.

About the Author

Stephan Pastis was once an unhappy lawyer who created Pearls Before Swine to relieve boredom. He lives in northern California with his wife and two children.
