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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Desperate Households: Purchased at Amazon.com April 17, 2015

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book number six of Stone Soup is just as good as its five predecessors. Just as reality can be very cruel, Val is laid off and daughter Holly decides to get a job to help out. Daughter Alix is as endearing as ever with more road kill hidden in her closet. A wonderful collection of cartoons that really make you laugh.

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.
