The large format of this wonderful book evokes the feeling of unfolding the Sunday paper and getting lost in Calvin's imaginative, troublemaking world. This survey of Bill Watterson's beloved "Calvin & Hobbes" comic strip covers the entire life of the cartoon, from 1985-1995. Original pencil drawings are juxtaposed with their finished color counterparts, complete with notes from Watterson musing about characters, technique, and the overall message of the strips. Calvin & Hobbes Sunday Pages 1985-1995 is a great tribute to Watterson and his fun-loving, free-spirited characters.

The imagination of the main character Calvin, is typical of most of the boys I know in his age group. Who wouldn't want a giant, stuffed, talking tiger for a closer-than-a-brother, friend. I would recommend this book to young children who want to have as much fun as possible before growing up.

This is a very good gift to recieve. My wife bought it for me for our first anniversary because she knew I was a fan of this particular comic strip. It gives insight into each individual strip that Bill Watterson wrote, and many times the little notes her wrote are as funny as the strip itself. Another thing I enjoyed about this book was how he brought various works together from many of his different books. It makes it very enjoyable.

This book is a great book because it encourages interest in reading for those that have difficulty reading. The pictures are nice and it shows dialogue.

I thoroughly enjoyed this Tenth Anniversary Edition of the Calvin and Hobbes series. Bill Watterson provides invaluable insight into his creative process and his struggle to maintain the integrity of his strip. He explains who the characters were to him and picks strips that show the multiple-dimensions of the characters. This book made saying goodbye to Calvin and Hobbes a bit easier, because with the help of his narration I realized how Watterson fully packed the life of the strip with quality and depth.

I just got this book, and believe me, it's so good, you'll finish it in no time at all. This is my favorite Calvin and Hobbes book. It's packed with some of the greatest comics written by Mr. Watterson.

I've been a fan of Calvin and Hobbes since the sixth grade. I was in a public library in Jonesboro Georgia when I was about thirteen and I ran across a book that was very similar to this one. It's a very fond memory because, the library was very old but it was new to me because it was my first time visiting. I'm an author, songwriter, producer, actor...but the first thing I was ever good at was art. I LOVE to draw. I checked out my Calvin and Hobbes book and took it home to sketch like the artist who drew my newfound daredevil friends. I always read the comic, but i never knew there was a book series. I'll never forget the year...it was 1988. One of the best years of my teens. Since then I checked out every Calvin and Hobbes book from every library I visited. I love the expedtitions, excitement and imagination of Young Calvin galavanting about with his stuffed Hobbes who magically came to life at his (Calvin's) mind's command.

I think everyone should read this book first because it shows the begining of when they met and because this book is just plain funny i like the ones when he asks if he could drive the car or when he asks to ride his tricycle off the roof. i hope if you ever get the chance to get this book for a cheap price or in a pack get it!

This is one of Watterson's best yet because it was interesting to read about the different characters and other cool info. He should continue doing Calvin and Hobbes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a none stop rollercoaster ride throught a very vivid child's imagination calvin and Hobbes is the funniest comics out thank you Bill Waterson I wish you still wrote them..

As with all Calvin and Hobbes books this is an excellent book to read. The descriptions that Watterson included with the comics are interesting and to find out how ideas were created for the comic strip.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This book was especially good. The descriptions of the characters in the beginning was a great highlight! I enjoyed this book just as much as the others. Calvin and Hobbes tenth anniversery is a delightful edition. I've read it about four times and have fully enjoyed the snow men comics. The Rosalyn comics are equally funny.

OMG! i love love love LOVE this book! i mean who doesnt love comic books? my favorite comics are the ones where calvin and susie are playing "house" or "doctor" an they look all grown up but then they have a fight over something silly an go back to being kids again. And how can such a smart kid do such dumb stuff? ive read every calvin and hobbes book an they are so good. Im sure you will like this one as much as i did!
