Cartoonist Stephan Pastis's 50,000,000 Pearls Fans Can't Be Wrong is one collection that's destined for the top of the charts. It's pure gold, packed with smart, sharp, and painfully honest comic strips that will rock readers with their clever insights into the human soul. Pearls Before Swine is Pastis's hilarious comic strip tale of two friends: arrogant, egotistical, hound dog Rat, and slow-witted, painfully naive, teddy bear Pig. Along with Zebra, the jailhouse rock activist; Goat, the treat me nice reluctant brain; and the heartbreak hotel carnivorous Crocs, Pearls delightfully mocks the flaws and shortcomings of human nature. Ladies and gentlemen, the King has left the building.
