Joan and Wally are on their honeymoon, all too soon to return to the slightly askew but loving (and frequently at war) extended family that is Stone Soup. I think my favorite characters here are the under-utilized grandmother Evie, and 9-year-old Alix, both of whom seem to have a grasp on the important things in life - number 1 being to enjoy the ride. This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite family strips. It's got heart, humor, and a quirky charm, and it often blends a funny strip with a subtle lesson. Artwork has come along nicely too, especially the expressions. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967410258, Paperback)

The comic strip Stone Soup has been endearing itself to millions of newspaper and online readers for more than ten years. Stone Soup follows the not-so-perfect lives of an extended, blended family. In Book Five the Stones have expanded into two households living just across the fence from one another. Readers will find some of their favorite episodes including: Joan and Wally adjust to married life and a blended family Val organizes her famous Book Club with women from other comic strips Gramma learns to paint... nudes. Stone Soup is unabashed, hilarious and addictive. Enjoy!
