Bill Watterson has a magical touch in developing the loveable charcters of Calvin and his pet tiger Hobbes. In this installment you follow many shorts of Calvin's mischief with Hobbes in tow! Truly one of my favorite in the series, "Indispensable" will leave you with the need to follow them through to the end of the comic strip.

Calvin and his stuffed tiger, Hobbs, brings us into his world. Calvin knows his world is ultimately controlled by adults, (his parents & teachers) but these comics are special because he knows these adults cannot control his very vivid (sometimes dangerous!) imagination. The vocabulary and illustrations are amazing. Thank you, Bill Watterson!

Bill Watterson's sense of humor and characters are proving to be timeless and relavant 15 years after his retirement and a decade into this new millenium. I enjoy reading and rereading this book to my 6 year old son who relates wonderfully to Calvin.

hey! if ur reading this and haven't read it yet...read it! i have 2 calvin and hobbes books, and they haven't dissapointed me one bit! its hilarious! calvin, 6 years old, has a wild imagination and his imaginary tiger friend, which is really a stuffed animal, hobbes, goes with him everywhere. together they have fun, watch t.v., sometimes fight, and plots evil plans to ditch the babysitter!!! this book has a lot of funny episodes, and is perfect for comic-lovers.

I give this HILARIOUS book FIVE STARS because you never know whats going on in Calvins mind because he does all this WACKO stuff.Once he locked his babysitter out of the house,and he also puts his UNDERWARE on his head and a towel around his neck and calls himself a hero!If your reading this I totaly recomend this AWESOME book to you.

Up to the usual pranks and exploration, Calvin and Hobbes is a fun read both for kids thinking about doing the actions as well as adults remembering when they wete done.
