"Pearls Before Swine is my favorite comic strip."Pearls Before Swine is the hilarious new comic strip tale of two friends: an arrogant, egotistical Rat who thinks he knows it all and a slow-witted Pig who doesn't know any better. Together with Zebra, the activist, and Goat, the reluctant brain, Pearls Before Swine offers caustic commentary on humanity's quest for the unattainable. Smart, witty, and sometimes painfully honest, Pearls Before Swine mocks the flaws and shortcomings of human nature with cynical humor.

Pearls Before Swine has been syndicated by United Feature Syndicate since January 2002 and now appears in more than 100 newspapers worldwide. In panel after panel, Pearls Before Swine causes readers to lose themselves in laughter.

User Review  - Sheri Fresonke Harper - Goodreads

One of the early "Pearls Before Swine" books, sans very many Zeebas and Crocs but fun with Rat and Pig and many more fun characters. Lots of jokes about jobs, what to eat, and horrible accidents. Worth quite a few giggles and nice for poor sick people stuck at home. Read full review
