A Room of One's Own is SO excited to welcome Stephan Pastis, creator of the popular Pearls Before Swine comic strip and Timmy Failure, a hilarious book for kids, to our store!

Please keep your hooves, paws, and snouts inside the ride at all times--- the Pearls Before Swine gang is back! Pearls Falls Fast: A Pearls Before Swine Treasury continues the saga of lovable Pig, cynical Rat, and the whole crew with two years’ worth of the award-winning, New York Times best-selling comic strip Pearls Before Swine. This treasury includes strips from the collections Unsportsmanlike Conduct and Rat’s Wars, along with new commentary from cartoonist Stephan Pastis himself, showcasing even more of his cynical wit and humor than the papers can handle.

Join the Pearls family as they face:

• Stephan going on trial for offensive content

• The crocodiles’ awkward foray into the world of politics

• Zebra’s hilariously futile attempts to bond with his long-lost son, “Plaid”

• Even more of Stephan’s shameless Sunday puns • And many more misadventures!

Stephan Pastis is an attorney turned cartoonist. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and the UCLA School of Law, he worked as a lawyer before trying his hand at cartooning with Pearls Before Swine, which now appears in over 750 newspapers worldwide. Pastis lives in the Bay Area, with his wife and two children.
