Goodreads Synopsis: 
Gather ‘round the smartphone, kids! Stephan and the Pearls gang are back with a whole album's-worth of jokes, jabs, and cringe-worthy puns.

Even Rat cracks a smile in this fifth Pearls Before Swine collection tailored for middle-grade readers. Witty, wacky, and occasionally wise, Suit Your Selfie is more kid-friendly fun from the New York Times best-selling author of Timmy Failure.
Suit your Selfie is a Pearls Before Swine collection of 1-2 page comic strips following a grouping of wacky animal characters and their lives. There is Rat, Pig, and Goat as the mail characters but also Zebra and Crocodiles as well, even the cartoonist makes appearances. 

These comic strips are laugh out loud funny but aimed at a younger audience than me - still funny though. Some of the panels hit really close-to-home and they are either very realistic events or quite crazy ones. For example, explaining a corded phone to the younger generation (hint: it really freaks them out), or a zebra running around as a unicorn and scaring crocodiles.

There were some life lessons, and notes about happiness, but many involved pizza - but that is the answer anyway right?! It was a great collection, I think younger readers will enjoy the humor in it, I did too, so this is a good one for many. If you like comic strips, definitely pick it up.
