    Gift

    We bought this for my 9 year old son on impulse as a gift and he absolutely fell in love with it. A month and a half later he is now re-reading it.

    It is sooo funny!

    It was my first Calvin and Hobbes book, but after it..I am always looking for more. I had so much fun while reading it, that by the time I was almost done I started slowing down to have more time to enjoy it. This kid is hillarious. He thinks as an adult, but with a funny innocent touch. And actually it is true that we all had 'or have' that special toy...However, Calvin is a bit more hyper and imaginative than common kids..Thank God!

    I love Calvin and Hobbes - but the book does not work on the HD+

    I love Calvin and Hobbes - but the book does not work on the HD+ I have been waiting for a resolution of the problem for more than a month. Save your money until the e-book is actually readable. B&N - it would be a courtesy if you would either make sure the ebooks work or at least take down the info that the books work on the HD+ when they dont....

    Boo!

    When I purchased there was no mention that this product could only be viewed on the NOOK color and not through the app. I would have purchased if this had been stated at time of purchase?

    Why can't I read it?

    Ridiculously restricted format! I have two Android phones, two Android tablets, and a Windows 8 machine...and Nook won't let me read my purchase on ANY of them. "Unsupported Device." At least tell me what device it requires prior to purchase. This is the first time I've had this issue, but it's unacceptable.

    Always a fan

    I have always been a fan of the comics, and actually have the whole set in paper form. However, when I saw that some of them were available for my nook HD+ I jumped at getting this. The only con is that they all aren't available right now! Great comic for anyone who is a fan. Calvin has an interesting take on life, and Hobbes is his balance.

    Thoroughly Witty

    Watterson brings Calvin and Hobbes to life with originality, wonder and fun. I bought this for my seven year-old and I hope he finds it as wonderful as I have.

    Calvin and Hobbes

    Okay, so this isn't a book that would turn the world around but if you just want some good old fun reading about a boy and his imaginary friend then you need to read these. I buy them for my son who is an avid fan of Calvin and his antics. He received two of these books for Christmas and loved them both. I think they are the kind of book that a bachelor should have in his house on a coffee table as a great ice breaker especially if your guests have never heard of these two characters.

    Calvin and Hobbes -- They are incredible. Thank you Bill Watterson for creating them and their adventures.

    I've collected all? the collections available. This purchase was a gift for a 13-year-old boy, and we knew it would be very well received. These compilations are great to keep in the car to re-read while waiting for appointments, etc. This book, and others that Mr. Watterson has blessed us with, are great for deck-sitting in the summer, and curling up on the couch on rainy or snowy days. Calvin's snowman creations, antics with parents, and the joint imaginations of this boy and his stuffed but very-much-alive cat, Hobbs, are always an entertaining! Kudos for the super-sized vocabulary. Kids won't even realize they're learning...
