    "Every morning you get up, you're the youngest you'll ever be. ...And the closest you've ever been to your inevitable death." This message of hope and good cheer is brought to you by Stephan Pastis via this, his latest collection. P.S. Can a GR librarian please fix this title? The book is called King of the Comics. "Pearls Before Swine Collection 2015" is a description I'd give a police sketch artist, not the name of a book.

    Reread this, and it was just as funny the second time around. The puns make me smile. And the crocs. I read the introduction out loud to my mom, an she was laughing so hard she was on the floor.

    (August 2015) I know I will love this. I have already read the first few pages and laughed out loud. By myself. Pearls Before Swine has become my husband's favourite comic in the daily paper - and he did not really begin reading comics until about a year ago. Almost every day he shows me the daily comic (unless Rat is absent - his favourite, who he refers to as Mouse). We laugh. Then I thought - hey, I bet PBS has books. I could get him one for Christmas. What a concept. I looked them up @ Chapt (August 2015) I know I will love this. I have already read the first few pages and laughed out loud. By myself.

What a concept. I looked them up @ Chapters and found them, then at my library and found them ALL. When I was at my branch yesterday, I located the shelf - in the YA section (why? Young Adult?) with help from the librarian as I could not locate the section and it is a small branch. I just picked one but many more on the shelf. So now we will settle in and enjoy. I know I recall a few from the first pages, but they are just as funny the second time. . . I often share the best ones from the online source, like this one from March http://www.gocomics.com/pearlsbefores... (more to come)

    A solid collection of Pearls Before Swine strips. Nothing truly classic, though. Plenty of snark and rage from Rat, cluelessness from Pig, and exasperation from Goat. I always forget how reliant on puns Pearls Before Swine is. That's not a bad thing, although sometimes it's a big stretch to get the joke. And often you can see the pattern coming that foreshadows the joke. Props to the word jumble Sunday strip. Pretty brave to make a strip that relies on the reader to do an actual puzzle to get the A solid collection of Pearls Before Swine strips. Nothing truly classic, though.

    Not enough of the crocs, Snuffles or Guard Duck for my liking and too many pun plays but still fantastically abrasive with a little softness from Pig. Goat to Pig: Oh, I'm sorry, Pig...Do you know what surreptitious means? Pig answers: It's syrup that's delicious.

    Let's be clear: I love pretty much every Pearls comic and anthology. But I especially loved the introduction, in which Pastis recounts his deadly encounter with Jim Davis. That was amazing. Amazing. Let's be clear: I love pretty much every Pearls comic and anthology. But I especially loved the introduction, in which Pastis recounts his deadly encounter with Jim Davis. That was amazing.

    Nothing like giggling out loud in the breakroom at work because of those neighborhood Zebras! (counts in my 2015 Reading Challenge as a book from an author you love that you haven't read yet) Nothing like giggling out loud in the breakroom at work because of those neighborhood Zebras!
