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 for—or faith in—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."—Garry Trudeau, from the Foreword

This is the first collection of the classic comic strip that features Calvin, a rambunctious 6-year-old boy, and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes, who comes charmingly to life. Filled with a mix of Watterson’s standard and full-page Sunday strips, this collection is sure to please fans and newcomers alike.
Bill Watterson is the creator of Calvin and Hobbes, one of the most popular and well-regarded cartoon strips of the twentieth century. Calvin and Hobbes appeared in newspapers from November 1985 until Watterson's retirement in

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious #plumreview At risk of doing what Calvin and Hobbes would never do and resort to a cliche, this book is great for children of all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Start of the Beginning of Something New If you do not love (and I mean LOVE) Calvin and Hobbes I don't think we can get along. Hands down the best comic strip ever made and it will never see an equal since comic strips have gone the way of the dodo. Sure Bloom County and Far Side can rival it but due to the art and heart C and H wins every time. Love this series SO much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bill Watterson speaks the truth Bill Watterson has managed, through a 6 year old boy and his stuffed tiger, to turn even the most mundane parts of life into a magical adventure. I highly recommend these books to everyone, but most especially those needing to recapture a little of life's magic.
