True to Pearls Before Swinetradition, the latest cartoon collection brims with Stephan Pastis's cynical humor, sharp wit, and clever commentary. Always togetherand sometimes with their fellow funny-page charactersthe regular Pearlsclan weighs in on everything from modern technology to current events to human nature. Picturing daily and Sunday strips that ran between summer 2010 and spring 2011, all the members of the skewed gang are here as Zebra engages in a never-ending war of neighborly hate with the Crocs, who have since sent Larry back to school, where he proves to be the dumbest beer-drinking student ever to enter the fourth grade. As always, Goat offers a voice of reason amid the ongoing chaos that Pastis creates, either from behind the pen or as a character within the strip itself. In its tenth year of publication, Pearls Before Swinenow appears in 600 newspapers worldwide, boasts an ever-growing online readership, and is a two-time winner of the National Cartoonists Society's Best Newspaper Comic Strip award. Pastis's latest collection is sure to add to the funny-page phenomenon, for it gives Pearlsfans more of what they know and love: satirical logic and hilarious wit.
