    For "Pearls" fans everywhere

    I got this for a Christmas present for a friend. In fact, it was one of three "Pearls Before Swine" treasuries I got for the friend, the first three treasuries of which this is the second. Stephan Pastis, the creator of "Pearls" has a good time with the medium, including playing with characters from other strips. "Family Circus" and "Comics for Kids" are just two strips whose characters he has "borrowed" in the past. I prefer the treasuries, as Pastis comments on many of the strips, sometimes telling the histories, sometimes commenting on reader reaction. The commentaries alone are worth the cost of the volumes.

    Funny Comic Strip! Good for fans of Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, and Garfield

    This was hilarious. Pearls Before Swine is a great strip. The writer, Stephan Pastis, has a dark but funny sense of humour. The strips main characters are all animals. Topics in the strip that are written about quite a bit are death and celebrities. Stephen Pastis is not biased and does not write one sided political cartoons at all. If You are looking for a good laugh, try this book.

    Zebras and pigs and rats, Oh My!

    This is great. "Pearls" is my favorite strip. Unfortunetly this is the only book of it i have. Not for long though. After reading this, i will buy them all. Stephan Pastis talks about comic creators that have integrity in this comic, and says they retire before theur work gets stale. Mr. Pastis, don't you ever retire, or i'll have a breakdown. LOL.
