Stephan Pastis may t be the kind, selfless arachnid of E.B. White's cherished children's vel, but he sure can spin a story - that is, if Rat, Pig, Goat, and Zebra don't swat him with a stick first. In Stephan's Web, the Pearls gang continues to find that friendship and puns are the best defense against everyday predators, like self-righteous vegans, cyclists, and fruitarians.
Stephan Pastis is an attorney turned cartoonist. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and the UCLA School of Law, he worked as a lawyer before trying his hand at cartooning. Pastis lives in the Bay Area with his wife and two children.
