  • Do you know as there are some things which never fail in cheering you up A hot chocolate on a cold night, some leisure time laying on the grass on a sunny day, a cold beer with a friend and a Bill Watterson s book I ve been under extreme pressure lately, so I took some time to revisit this two friends of mine and what a visit Calvin Hobbes take me back to a time when everything was simple childhood We then grew up, life got in the way, things got complicated, and much of the innocence was lost a [...]


  • All the usual delightful and poignant Calvin hijinks are in this collection in addition to a couple rather honest emotional strips that kind of amazed me in their honesty Calvin s parents unease after returning from vacation to find their home was broken into and, little moments like Calvin asking his mother to tell him she loves him before he comes down out of the tree expecting to be in huge trouble Normally, I find myself identifying with Calvin or Hobbes, but this volume reminded me how well [...]


  • I think it s safe to say that I will read every Calvin and Hobbes book that has ever been written and none of them will ever receive a rating of less than 5 stars.


  • I love Calvin who never wants to bathe, or go to bed, let alone wake up, and go to school He philosophizes on problems such as how could Santa Claus finance his business, and why do the ants work constantly I also love Hobbes who pounces on Calvin every day, and I guess he is Calvin s better half, at least he is trying We ll get in trouble My absolute favorite in this volume is Calvin s Mother s Day poem Did you notice the part about my allowance .


  • I was crushed when Watterson decided to discontinue the Calvin and Hobbes series of comic strips for adults, so I bought all the trade paperbacks I ran into one the other day while dusting some book shelves not my favorite activity I had read it before but these characters never get old and are iconic as far as I am concerned So over lunch, I read it again and it was just as enjoyable as the first time If you have never dipped your toe into the world of Calvin and Hobbes, you are missing quite a [...]


  • I think this one s my favorite Calvin and Hobbes collection In it, Mr Watterson tries his hand at a couple of serious storylines, namely the Propeller Beanie tale and the sequence in which Calvin s home gets burgled I think he handled both tales well, melding realistic events with Calvin s weird take on reality And, of course, there s the usual Calvinity afoot, including the origin of G.R.O.S.S I would have thought that institution had started earlier in the strip s history Good thing I m rerea [...]


  • What can I say about Calvin and Hobbes that has not already been said I grew up reading about Calvin s crazy adventures and imaginative world When I became a father I bought these for my son and he has a pile of Calvin and Hobbes books that are splashed all over his bed He sometimes comes out of his room laughing and wanting to show me another one , and I have enjoyed reading them all over again, especially with my son.


  • Calvin Hobbes uma das duplas mais afamadas da banda desenhada de todos os tempos, e no entanto ainda n o tinha tido verdadeiramente contacto com a hist ria destes dois pequenos traquinas que Bill Watterson nos apresenta Dois livros depois, dizer que estou rendida aos seus encantos pouco cr tica emleiturasmarginais


  • No matter how many times I read them, I can never get tired of Calvin and Hobbes They re funny, creative, and are always getting into some sort of situation that could just about get them grounded for life The Revenge of the Baby Sat offers such adventures as that in a funny and entertaining way.This is the fifth installment of the Calvin and Hobbes series, and it just gets better every repeated reading The title of this book refers to the classic sequence of strips in which Calvin plots revenge [...]


  • I love reading Calvin Hobbes again and again I like all it s character and i like the cartoon A mere six year old child Calvin is real interesting character His thinking seems so natural as presented by Watterson People around Calvin always intercepting him always creating hurdle and he face them in his own challenging way Why pick up bed why not make a bot to do such daily petty jobs.Even though Rosalyn his baby sat takes money than general baby sitting she always is at disadvantage This time [...]


  • I have nothing to say or write about this collection except that it s wonderful and anyone out there including me who was late to the CH party should do themselves a favor and pick it up I have yet to read a writer of graphic or standard novels who ably described and so beautifully the fun and alienating aspects of American boyhood so believably as Bill Watterson does in this and I suspect his others collections of this sublime newspaper comic.





  • Once in a while I just got to read a Calvin and Hobbes book They are just as much fun as they have been 20 years ago You can just read them again and again Love the authors creativity, the little wisdoms and just the plain fun these comic strips have.


  • Still needing Trump proof reading at night Wonderful book Lets you mind drift off into pleasant chuckling sleep.





  • Calvin and Hobbes were a bedrock of my childhood I m estimating I ve read each five times but in reality I d just grab one at random, open at random, and then be lost in the world of Calvinball and Spaceman Spiff, Suzy Derkins and Moe, fantastic snowmen and philosophical walks in the woods with Hobbes.As a kid who lived in his imagination to escape the many difficulties of an unstable childhood and crippling depths of introversion, Calvin embodied that side of me though I was actually mild manne [...]


  • First off I really loved this book I think it s a really good free read book to read if you have some extra time to read this book This book is always in third omniscient point of view So you know it s gonna be a very adventuress type book Not to mention the amazing drawings by Bill Watterson His drawings really set the happy and joyful mood But lets get to the really good stuff.We start off with the crazy life of Calvin an stubborn 6 year old boy that has a really really big imagination and det [...]


  • Yet another of my old Calvin and Hobbes books for some nostalgic reading.I feel like every review I give of a Calvin book is nothing but a series of superlatives, but that s because it s one of the greatest comic strips ever made This one includes some fantastic stories, such as the origins of the super secret club for only Calvin and Hobbes, G.R.O.S.S Get Rid of Slimy girlS There is also a much deeper story involving a break in while the family is away at a wedding in which Calvin also accident [...]


  • I m pretty sure that all the cartoons in this book are also in one of the collections with the Sunday strips in color It s still worthwhile to collect the individual books, if only for the panels on the covers and the endpages And for redundancy, of course, since you wouldn t want to lose the classic strips.A point about aging As in many strips, Calvin stays 6 years old that is, his age at the start This ensures continuity, but it causes problems with chronology The only comic strip that ever su [...]


  • Oh, the joys and frustrations of childhood Bill Watterson is surely not the only writer illustrator cartoonist artist to manage to depict these days so spot on, yet he is surely one of the very finest The antics of the six year old Calvin and his timeless stuffed tiger Hobbes remain funny and amusing and poignant, no matter how often you reread these strips Watterson has made the world a better, comprehensible and manageable place for this I thank him.Watterson se uitbeelding van die kinderlewe [...]


  • Another cracking collection circa early 90s , this runs through the year so we get the seasons and panels relative to them camping out in the wilds, when only Dad is interested Hobbes not getting a Christmas present, apart from a lovely hug from Calvin and it works brilliantly Stand outs include the reading of bedtime stories being a Dad s job you didn t do the dishes , the formation of G.R.O.S.S Get Rid Of Slimey girlS and the panel I hope some day I m as a smart as Dad Why, what did he say now [...]


  • I ve been a fan of Calvin and Hobbes for many, many years and our girls are becoming fans as well Our youngest borrowed this book from her elementary school library and subsequently lost it We found it during the summer and I thought I d peruse the comics again before we returned it to her school Most of the comic strips were familiar and it was worth a quick read interesting quotes Pretty convenient how every time I build character, he saves a couple hundred dollars p 19 I don t think I d have [...]


  • Watterson s illustrations show the hilarious nature of Calvin and Hobbes and Calvin s often frustrated parents Calvin s ability to speak an advanced language and see through the pettiness of elementary school requirements is enlightening and makes the books even hilarious Hobbes, his stuffed companion who is by nature a tiger, surprises the reader by doing tiger things, making Calvin not fully trust Hobbes s intentions MUST READ AT ANY AGE The trials that they put this babysitter through is hys [...]


  • I such a fan of Calvin and his Tiger Hobbs Calvin is a knight fighting off dragons, saving Wimmin from octopi and guarding the galaxy as Spiff the spaceman Hobbs is always along for the ride, often for moral support, and mostly as the instigator of the madness Whether they are fighting the local T Rex, or careening down the hill in the cart from hell, the expressions on their faces are AMAZing I ve tried to hit the highlights of this craziness, but every page has something that is a laugh riot I [...]


  • Calvin and Hobbes caught my attention as a small child, and even though I didn t always get all of the adult jokes, I still enjoyed them After a few years of reading, I appreciated and and even now, as an adult, I enjoy the creativity and joy Calvin finds in every situation of life After reading every book of Calvin and Hobbes, I would recommend them to anyone who wants to find the joys of a simple life and I look forward to sharing them with my own boys when they are a bit older.


  • This is a refined Calvin and Hobbes if such a thing exists The storylines are indepth, the artwork complete and detailed and there are longer strips If you are familiar with the history of Calvin and Hobbes and the pressures Will Watterson was put under shorter deadlines, ever decreasing space to place each new strip, and syndication you know that he felt quality suffered to the point where he stopped producing them However this book shows none of those limitations and is to my opinion one of [...]
