Author(s): Stephan Pastis
Always witty and clever, and sometimes irreverent, Pearls Before Swine's sarcastic take on life appeals to fans of all ages. In this second collection of cartoons specially chosen for young readers, the troupe of characters is back to entertain with dark humour and off-the-wall puns. Know-it-all Rat is always at the centre of the action, accompanied by slow-witted Pig who is innocently oblivious to most of Rat's jabs. Rounded out with high-browed Goat, the mild and vulnerable Zebra, and the hilariously inept Crocs, the cast is ready to provide hours of reading fun.
Stephan Pastis is an attorney turned cartoonist. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and the UCLA Law School, he worked as a lawyer before trying his hand at cartooning.
