Book Description

April 1, 2007 Stone Soup

Capturing the riotous and exhausting life of working mom Val Stone and her extended blended family . . . Jan Eliot has created a classic family story for our times. --New York Newsday

* Jan Eliot manages to find the humor in working parent hassles, the terrible twos, middle-school angst, love, and the life of the single mom in this collection. The all-too-real humor of Stone Soup is very wise and very funny.

Distributed to more than 150 newspapers in six countries with over eight million loyal fans, Stone Soup is a funny, irreverent, sympathetic comic strip that mirrors today's complicated family life . . . while cheering us on.

* Jan Eliot's Stone Soup follows the riotous and exhausting life of working mom Val, her daughters Holly and Alix, and her often too-close-for-comfort extended blended family . . . conveniently living right next door.

More About the Author

For Jan Eliot, cartooning started out as therapy and evolved into a career. Juggling life as a single working mom, she drew cartoons at night after the kids went to bed. In 1995 she launched the comic strip Stone Soup, which is loosely based on her family, friends and unsuspecting strangers at the mall. Stone Soup is syndicated by Universal UClick and appears in over 300 newspapers. There are currently 10 book collections of her comic strip available, the latest "It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time" published in 2014.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would love a hardcopy! August 5, 2013
Format:Paperback
I don't have a hardcopy of this book and would love one -- reasonably priced, of course. Why is it so rare? Did they not make enough, or was there a problem somehow? I'm very curious about it.
