When cartoonist Bill Watterson announced that his phenomenally popular cartoon strip would be discontinued, Calvin and Hobbes fans throughout the world went into mourning. Fans have learned to survive -- despite the absence of the boy and his tiger in the daily newspaper. It's a Magical World delivers all the satisfaction of visiting its characters once more. Calvin fans will be able to see their favorite mischief maker stir it up with his furry friend, long-suffering parents, classmate Susie Derkins, school teacher Miss Wormwood, and Rosalyn the baby-sitter. It's a Magical World includes full-color Sundays and has it all: Calvin-turned-firefly waking Hobbes with his flashlight glow; courageous Spaceman Spiff rocketing through alien galaxies as he battles Dad-turned-Bug-Being; and Calvin's always inspired snowman art. There's no better way for Watterson fans to savor again the special qualities of their favorite strip.
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 Truly magical If you viewed the world as a cynical adult while still a child, you'd be Calvin! Funny and sweet and something I can share with my young son....although we both get something different from it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Book! I've held onto this book for 20 years. Calvin and Hobbes never fail to please and inspire. I love these little stories and I'm hoping to expand my collection with the other books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most recent of the Calvin and Hobbes comics This book is a collection of the last Calvin and Hobbes comics, and its last comic in the book was the last one Bill Watterson wrote. One of my favourites is included in this book, the one where Roslyn plays Calvinball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reminds one of their childhood #plumreview You can't really go wrong with any Calvin and Hobbes. This collection is no exception. Touching and hilarious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book is great! I love Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin is a mischievious and trouble making first grader. Hobbes is but my favorite character. He's mystical and cuddly, loving and law-abiding (sort of). I'm only 10 and I enjoy them! It's a Magical World is the last book Bill Waterson wrote about Calvin and Hobbes. The last comic is very good. And ends up the whole book. Mr. Waterson's retirement was shocking to all of the Calvin and Hobbes fans, as of myself. But Calvin and Hobbes will live in the books, in our memorys, and of course, our hearts...
