    ITEM#: 11363105

    Jan Eliot started cartooning when real life started driving her crazy. Initially published in just one alternative newspaper, Eliot gradually broadened her audience to include millions of readers. Syndicated since 1995, Stone Soup appears in 200 daily newspapers in 6 countries. Based on her own life as a divorced, working mom of two girls, Stone Soup was originally Eliot's form of therapy. As she struggled with too little money, too little time, and too little patience, Eliot chronicled the events and emotions in cartoons, and found a way to laugh at her reality. Though her daughters are now grown and raising their own families, real life continues to inspire her humor, and is the essence of Stone Soup.
    This Might Not Be Pretty is the seventh collection of the comic strip Stone Soup. Stone Soup is a syndicated comic strip by cartoonist Jan Eliot. It appears daily in 200 newspapers in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. This Might Not Be Pretty features Jan Eliot's cartoons in full color. Stone Soup chronicles the constant chaos and misadventures of working moms Val and Joan, who also happen to be sisters. With their extended and blended families, they try their best to navigate modern life... and bring comic relief to the daily disasters we all experience. Val and Joan's two households, separated by only a fence, are a constant source of comfort— and irritation— to each other. The Stone family includes a middle-school diva and her tomboy little sister; a bouncing-off-the-wall three year old and a teenage boy cousin, their patient but bewildered stepdad; and an opinionated grandmother. And of course, there's a dog. Readers will see themselves or someone they know in this book.

    • Hilarious Entertainment!

      If you haven't read Jan Eliot's cartoon strip "Stone Soup", you are in for a treat! She is one of my Top Ten All Time Cartoon Faves, and as a big cartoon buff, that's saying something. Hilarious, smart, touching, exciting, and so real you would think she was looking through your window for ideas, Jan is right on in her strip about a widowed mom, her two young daughters, and her extended family, all of whom live with her or right next door. I have all of her books and even though I read her in the paper every day, it's not enough- I want to have her strips at my fingertips for whenever I need a good laugh. In my opinion, she is the best writer to ever come from my home state. So when's the next book coming out? I'm ready and waiting!
