The Get Fuzzy team is back in action, and they’re jumping in with all feet.
Our tough-as-nails crew has been assembled. Bucky Katt has a plan to take out the ferrets next door, and it will require all of his powers of disguise and stealth to get the job done. Satchel Pooch is going on the offense and channeling his inner assault-broccoli to defeat the vegetables before they defeat him. And Rob, the unofficial peacekeeper, is left to clean up the aftermath before the whole thing becomes an international incident. Packed with intrigue, covert aggression, and domestic warfare, Catabunga! is an all-out battle of wit and words that’s not to be missed.

An author-annotated Pearls Before Swine treasury featuring cartoons from Larry in Wonderland and Because Sometimes You Just Have to Draw a Cover with Your Left Hand.
From fire-breathing jugglers to sword-swallowing illusionists, this treasury showcases all strips from Larry in Wonderland and Because Sometimes You Just Gotta Draw a Cover with Your Left Hand, along with Pastis's original commentary, which provides insight into what Pastis was thinking at the time random strips were conceived, and also fan reactions.
Tackling topics ranging from current events and modern technology to human and croc nature, Pearls Freaks the #*%# Out offers up a sideshow of feisty characters, including arrogant, self-centered, and totally hilarious Rat, who leads his four-legged collection of freakish friends through a carnival of misadventure. Joining the circuslike cavalcade are Pig, the slow but good-hearted conscience of the strip; Goat, the voice of reason that often goes unheard; Zebra, the activist; and those eternally inept carnivorous Crocs, who we learn happen to taste a lot like chicken. Pastis's cynical humor and sharp wit imbue this entertaining vaudevillian collection.

Yup, Nate’s up to his ears in stress. Luckily, the perfect remedy is close at hand: an empty plastic soda bottle.
