For the decade of waking up with a bowl of fruit loops and the paper. I awoke in awe and wonder to find out what my two best friends were doing today. We left their story in 95 but they never left our imagination. Partly because of their limited exposure. They were frozen in a time capsule. Not for lack of want from those who were touched by their stories. I have watched the documentaries read the books about trying to find the author and here we finally get to read his thoughts and answered are our collective questions. We miss our friends Bill but we are happy to hear you are doing well. My wildest dream is that your working on something in secret a reunion we will find one day a sleigh ride back into your wonderful imagination. Thanks for some of my fondest memories.
I love, love, love, love Calvin and Hobbe. I am probably their biggest fan. I read um them at school, in the van to school, and at home!!!!!!!! So ya................ and that is all i have to say for today.
This book looked really good, but I can't read it on my Nook or online, and I can't contact customer service (they are offline even though it is only 10:00 PM). I wish I could get a refund so that I could purchase a paper copy of the book.
