From the Publisher
The Pearls Before Swine crew is back in their second collection of cartoons for the middle-grade crowd!
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 humor and off-the-wall puns. Know-it-all Rat is always at the center 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.

"It’s endearing and hilarious and makes readers laugh out loud. The illustrations are crisp and colorful like a comic should be and the way Stephan Pastis depicts the animals is super cute...This collection offers a huge variety of themes...And the dialogue between characters is unique and savvy."
