Thank you Mr Pastis for continuing to deliver hilarious characters and strips for over seven years. Love the rat, pig, goat, zebra, crocs, guard duck, Snuffles the cat, and of course, Danny Donkey!
Andy the dog is one of my all-time favorite characters, who is featured heavily in this book.
The fun continues unabated in "Pearls Blows Up"!
The treasuries are great. I love the creator's comments underneath each strip. Buying it for the comments alone is worth it, they are often times as funny as the strip.
Pastis does a great job considering the ridiculous limitations the syndicates and papers put modern strips under. If fact, Pearls is made for smaller sizes except for the print which sometimes diminishes into oblivion with reduction, but take heart, because the strips are reproduced at a great size in the books. I'm glad Pastis went into drawing cartoons instead of doing something crazy like being a lawyer that goes into politics.
Also, as a bonus, the "treasuries" like "Pearls Blows Up" include commentary from Stephan Pastis that brings to life the background of his creativity, explains some plot-lines, or even outright apologizes when he realizes that a joke just plain flopped!
Please note- a large part of the value of the "treasuries" vs. the "collections" is the commentary by Stephan Pastis. When someone has rated a book like this lower as it presents "no new material", I think they are missing this point. The description of the books clearly states if the material is drawn from previous collections, so I think it unfair that the treasuries might be criticized in this respect. Well worth buying!
