Pearls Before Swine is Pastis’s hilarious comic strip tale of two friends: arrogant, egotistical, “hound dog” Rat, and slow-witted, painfully naïve “teddy bear” Pig. Along with Zebra, the “jailhouse rock” activist; Goat, the “treat me nice” reluctant brain; and the “heartbreak hotel” carnivorous Crocs, Pearls delightfully mocks the flaws and shortcomings of human nature.

In Friends Should Know When They're Not Wanted, Stephan Pastis, of Pearls Before Swine fame, offers a funny take on the dark side of friendship as shown through sappy photographs and sarcastic quotes. Consider the following: * Friendships are like rainbows. They go away. * You can't put a price on a friend. Which is too bad. I'd like to sell mine. * There is no greater joy in life than the simple act of laughing with a friend. Except laughing at him. That rocks. From friends expanding each other's vocabulary with words like "shmulky shlumperdik," to true friendships lasting a lifetime (like chronic back pain), Pastis emphasizes that friends can sure be good for a laugh.

In the spring of 1848 seventy-six slaves from the nation's capital hid aboard a schooner called the Pearl in an attempt to sail down the Potomac River and up the Chesapeake Bay to freedom in Pennsylvania. When inclement weather forced them to anchor for the night, the fugitive slaves and the ship's crew were captured and returned to Washington. Many of the slaves were sold to the Lower South, and two men sailing the Pearl were tried and sentenced to prison. Recounting this harrowing tale from the preparations for escape through the participants' trial, Josephine Pacheco provides fresh insight into the lives of enslaved blacks in the District of Columbia, putting a human face on the victims of the interstate slave trade, whose lives have been overshadowed by larger historical events. Pacheco also details the Congressional debates about slavery that resulted from this large-scale escape attempt. She contends that although the incident itself and the trials and Congressional disputes that followed were not directly responsible for bringing an end to the slave trade in the nation's capital, they played a pivotal role in publicizing many of the issues surrounding slavery. Eventually, President Millard Fillmore pardoned the operators of the Pearl.
