Overview

In the world that Calvin and his tiger Hobbes share, treasures can be found in the most unlikely places, from the outer regions where Spaceman Spiff travels to the rocks in the backyard—this curious duo roams their world in search of fortunes (and misfortunes!) to be experienced. Whether Calvin and Hobbes are blasting off on another interplanetary adventure or approaching warp speed on a downhill wagon ride, their capers consistently charm and refresh their readers' days. On his own, Calvin is prey to the insidious killer bicycle, is the arbiter of the Dad poll, is the creator of a legion of snowmen who provide an incisive social commentary, and Hobbes is always there as the perfect companion. Watterson's talent is evidenced by the range of thought-provoking emotions the strip encompasses in addition to the laughs it induces: the loyalty and friendship between Calvin and Hobbes, the challenge of being a patient parent, and the sardonic viewpoint of a cynical six-year-old ("I'm a 21st-century kid trapped in a 19th-century family," laments Calvin) combine to make this one of the best-loved strips in cartoon history.

I admit it, I am a Calvin and Hobbes fan since the series was originally drawn. Reading any of the compilations of Calvin and Hobbes shows Watterson had more than just an appreciation of children growing up, he created so much more than just drawing a funny cartoon series-- He was also able to express childhood and child development on many levels simultaneously, from many perspectives at the same time, and that is very rare. You can go from a humorous cartoon strip of typical childish deviltry in the form of water ballons to Calvin trying to understand the real meaning of life, trying to understand and deal with the death of a small sick animal he found. All of the books are highly recommended, but any one of them will provide a joy of life seen mostly through the eyes of a six year old, and frequently his ever coping parents. Parents and children will find many laughs in any of these books.

Calvin and Hobbes have always been one of my favorite funnies and I have to say that I am sorry that they are no longer in the 'funny' pages of our papers. This book brings back so many wonderful memories and it made me laugh all the way through. This is one of those funny books that will take you back to your childhood as well and get you to thinking of when you were full of mischief and you will laugh out loud just like I did. Get it and any and all of His other books and just sit back and forget the trials and tribulations of the world we live in today. zsteddybear

Even if it wouldn't be a good idea to do some of these things it sure is great to think about the possibility. And oh what fun. And if you really want to annoy your mother just keep reading them out loud to her. She will think that is great.

I love how in the newer books, the Sunday comics were in color! Anyway, I loved the one with the 'Tyrannosaurs in F-14s!' LOL!!!!!! Man, that Calvin's got quite an imagination! And I love the one where Calvin keeps putting off his homework, even in spite of a snow day and class ending the next day before Miss Wormwood could collect the homework. 'I've learned work before pleasure, no exceptions. And it will be a pleasure to have that work done! C'mon, Hobbes, let's work on a snowman!' 'No exceptions.' I also loved the show and tell where Calvin pretends he's a monster. 'Miss Wormwood, shouldn't he be in some special class or something?' Man, where does Bill Watterson get his ideas! Like Calvin, Bill's a super-genius!!!!

I've read all of Calvin and Hobbes books at least fifteen time, there really great. I'm a huge fan of all of Bill Wattersons books especially There's Treasure Everywhere. fill with exceptionally humorous comics. You should really get this book so that you can join Calvin and Hobbes on all of their adventures.

My favorite character in this book is Calvin because his imagination carries him away,like when Hobbes jumped on him when he had the football.

i am a pretty big calvin and hobbes fan, because he is incredibly funny and he has interesting thoughts about life. There's Treasure Everywhere is one of the best collections Watterson has done.

It was really funny- a great Calvin and Hobbes book! Especially the one about the monster at Show and Tell!

Most people agree that It's A Magical World was the best book, but personally, I prefer Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat. I think Stupendous Man meeting Miss Wormwood is the funniest strip ever. However, it was hard to beat that 'Clear Plastic Binder' strip when Calvin was studying Bats. 'Foxtrot: I'm Flying, Jack- I mean Roger' just got out. It should be definetley competing against this.

"I Don't Think You Should Have to do Something Unless You're Enthusiastic About It." Hard to believe this is the next to last Calvin and Hobbes collection.  For fans of the series, there isn't much to say but buy the book.  You'll love it as much as the others.  New to the comic strip?  Here's why you should buy it. Calvin is a typical overactive six-year-old.  Hobbes is his best friend stuffed tiger who is alive thanks to Calvin's imagination.  Together, they have all kinds of adventures, including enhancing Calvin's brain to give him an idea for a topic for his paper or fighting to keep Calvin from being bad leading up to Christmas. Honestly, this book is more stand alone laughs that full on stories.  That doesn't make them any less funny.  And, while we have seen some of these set ups before, like Calvin's snow art, the punch lines still get laughs.  Even though I've read this book countless times before, I still laugh at the familiar strips.  And the social commentary, while 20 years old, is still spot on, sadly. There is a weird time jump in this book since Bill Watterson took a nine month sabbatical before coming back for the final year.  That's why spring is just sprouting in one strip and we're back to New Year's Resolutions in the next. But as any fan of the strip will tell you, that hardly matters.  There are laughs and quotable lines throughout this book.  Read and enjoy today.
