Overview

Calvin and Hobbes 3. In the Shadow of the Night by Bill Watterson

The first book collection of the classic and beloved Calvin and Hobbes comic strip!

"Most people who write comic dialogue for minors demonstrate surprisingly little feel for—or faith in—the original source material, that is, childhood, in all its unfettered and winsome glory. It is in this respect that Bill Watterson has proved as unusual as his feckless creations, Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson is the reporter who's gotten it right; childhood as it actually is."—Garry Trudeau, from the Foreword

This is the first collection of the classic comic strip that features Calvin, a rambunctious 6-year-old boy, and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes, who comes charmingly to life. Filled with a mix of Watterson’s standard and full-page Sunday strips, this collection is sure to please fans and newcomers alike.

One of the most imaginitive, heart-warming comic strips of all time.It will touch the heart and mind of every person to come across its' pages. It captures something other strips have yet to by showing what it truly means to have an imagination, sense of humor, and a real vocabulary.

I just put this back on my shelf as we unpacked our books. I quickly pulled it off again to have a read. After 20 years it still makes me laugh out loud. --J.

I READ THIS WHEN I WAS A KID AND THOUGHT MY KIDS MIGHT LIKE IT. SOME OF IT WAS OVER THEIR HEADS BUT THEY LAUGHED AT SOME PARTS LIKE SOMEONE WAS TICKLING THEM. I RE-READ THE BOOK ALSO AND FOUND MYSELF LOL.

Calvin and Hobbes has such incredible imagination, humor, and wit that no other comic can ever compare to it. I have never laughed so much!

I remember it was approaching Christmas 1987, and I bought this book as a present for my brother Greg. When I first bought it I read the whole thing over and over again until I could memorize it. Yeah, it was painful having to part with the book at Christmas time, but the first thing I got with my Christmas money was to...you guessed it! I went out and bought this book and devoured it! I would bring this book to school with me every day and read it during lunchtime! My 9-year old niece, Kaitlin, Greg's little girl is starting to read these now. Excellent first book!

Ah, yes. I am not surprised to see so many positive responses to Calvin and Hobbes. I wondered why people post reviews and now I know - because they are bored. I have read almost all of the Calvin and Hobbes books and they are all very enjoyable. Some of the jokes and topics Watterson uses/talks about might not be understood by younger kids, but there's always that last word that makes even tedious strips funny. So, if you have yet to read a Calvin and Hobbes book, I recommend doing so.

Calvin and Hobbes is possibly the funniest comic series in the world! I absolutely love them! My favourite book is the tenth anniversary. I love Scientific Progress goes Boink! probably anyone who has ever read Calvin and Hobbes would agree with me that the pair are positively hilarious!

I remember when I first read this book. I was fourteen years old and even six years later I am twenty years old and I still enjoy reading Calvin and Hobbes books. They get funnier each time I read them!!!
