Fans of Pearls Before Swine
know that, in addition to being hilarious, it can be outrageous and even controversial. Death, marriage, more death - is this comic for kids? By focusing on strips that feature death but not fatalism, strips that are about friendship but not adult relationships, and strips that avoid some pop-culture references and purely adult concerns, this collection shows that, yes, this comic is for kids! Since the earliest fairy tales first introduced wickedly self-obsessed stepmothers, children's literature has provided a safe way for young readers to experience less-than-rosy thoughts and feelings. Pearls Before Swine
's memorable characters are in fine company and are on target. Besides, they're downright funny-and that's something all ages can appreciate!
