    I Also Recommend:

    Bill Watterson at his best.

    Calvin is still at his imaginative adventures. In this collection you have some of Bill Watterson's best comics. In this volume you'll see the very first time Calvin actually goes camping with his parents with the worst weather anyone could dread. See the invention of the hand held trasmogrifier and the longest set of comics based on his Dad's polls. This collection also includes the exclusive story where Calvin turns himself into an elephant to memorize his vocabulary words. This collection also introduces Stupendous Man in his nameplate hood and cape. The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes is composed of comics from "Yukon Ho!" and "Weirdoes From Another Planet!"

    Calvin & Hobbes - the best thing since sliced bread!

    I can't recommend any Calvin & Hobbes book highly enough!! They're perfect for any coffee table, because they can be enjoyed by anyone of any age and literary taste. Calvin's sarcasm and Hobbes dry irony are a perfect match for Calvin's long-suffering parents, and the wonderful graphic art perfectly captures those "bon mots" that leave you giggling helplessly! Calvin & Hobbes is for everyone who has ever been a child, and anyone who has ever been a parent (or who intends to be at some point in their life - be warned!)

    Calvin & Hobbes is all I read

    I love Calvin and Hobbes. It has been all I have read for the past 4 or 5 months, (I haven't read anything else) and I love it!!! If you have yet to read a Calvin & Hobbes Book, I advise this one because it is a collection of some of Watterson's greatest strips

    Great read!

    These collections of comics of a six year old boy and his "imaginary" tiger are both heart-warming and hilarious. Bill Watterson has nailed the mind of a young boy and this compilation will endure as a classic collection!

    This book is great ...

    This book is great. It has everything you want in a good comic, lots of humor, a little action, and good pictures. The pictures are really good and artistic and some of them are even colorful.

    This was a great book!!

    I would rate this book 5 stars because it just was fantastic! I have literally read it 6 times and I am willing to read it once again. I would recomend this book to everybody of all ages. Bill Watterson (the author) should get an award for this book and all of the other books he has written. Great job Mr. Watterson! (Oh, and the e-mail address is my father's. I don't have one of my own yet)
