The Croc Ate My Homework: A Pearls Before Swine Collection

by Stephan Pastis

Andrews McMeel Publishing | July 1, 2014 | Trade Paperback

The Croc Ate My Homework: A Pearls Before Swine Collection is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.
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.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Selections for Young Readers I read half of this book to give a try as I'd never read "Pearls Before Swine". I'm not a comic strip fan and couldn't make my way through the whole book, but I actually enjoyed the comics. I take things pretty literally and don't usually get or find comics funny but these did tickle my fancy. Rat's sarcasm was my favourite part and he's probably my favourite character. This particular book is the second in a series of comics specially selected for young readers.

Editorial Reviews

"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." (Debbie Glade, Smart Books for Smart Kids)
