The Croc Ate My Homework A Pearls Before Swine Collection

Written by Stephan Pastis

Part of the Pearls Before Swine Kids Series

The Croc Ate My Homework A Pearls Before Swine Collection Synopsis

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 humour and off-the-wall puns. Know-it-all Rat is always at the centre 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.

The Croc Ate My Homework A Pearls Before Swine Collection Press 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) The heavily sarcastic tone will likely appeal to youngsters, who can appreciate making fun of everything around them. (Johanna Draper-Carlson, Comics Worth Reading) This would make a nice follow-up read for kids who have finished Timmy (Failure). (Travis Jonker, School Library Journal's 100 Scope Notes blog) ...this entry will no doubt provide laughs for middle grade fans of his Timmy Failure books (Candlewick)...The bright, full-color strips full of puns and sarcasm will delight kids with a snarky and irreverent sense of humor...this title will make a welcome, and well-circulated addition to any library hoping to expand its graphic novel collection for tweens. (John Trischitti, School Library Journal)
