From the Publisher
The first book collection of the classic and beloved Calvin and Hobbes comic strip!
"Most people who write comic dialogue for minors demonstrate surprisingly little feel forâ€”or faith inâ€”the original source material, that is, childhood, in all its unfettered and winsome glory. It is in this respect that Bill Watterson has proved as unusual as his feckless creations, Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson is the reporter who's gotten it right; childhood as it actually is."â€”Garry Trudeau, from the Foreword
This is the first collection of the popular comic strip that features Calvin, a rambunctious 6-year-old boy, and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes, who comes charmingly to life.
