I think this book has a lesson in it that you should listen to your mom or dad and to not always ask for so many things. Calvin and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes, who actually comes to life, always have fun. Calvin always uses his imagination. Most of the time he uses his imagination like when he becomes Space Man Spiff and goes to different planets he names himself. When his teacher, mom, or dad is talking, Calvin is always ignoring them, so Calvin usually get sent to the board when he's at school. This taught me that you should always listen to your teacher and not play around or do other stuff.

My favorite part of this book was when Calvin and Hobbes throw snowballs at this girl named Susie Derkins, who Calvin really hates, but Hobbes really likes. Susie starts to send letters to Hobbes instead of Calvin, so Susie invites Hobbes to her birthday party. Calvin and Hobbes go on a scavenger hunt and the first thing on their list is an old license plate, and Calvin says, "Great! I saw one on the way here." It was funny, though, when Calvin ends up taking it off Susie's parents' car. When Calvin was taking off the license plate, Hobbes said, "Are you sure this game is legal?" He was worried he was going to get caught, so they did it really quickly and Calvin used his pocket knife to unscrew the license plate.

I thought this book was funny and I liked how the author put in illustrations and detail.

What a treasure this is! This work is a collection that combines comics from two previous works -- Yukon Ho, and Weirdos from Another Planet. However, this treasury has three extra advantageous features. The Sunday strips appear here in full color; the format is larger, allowing a better appreciation of the drawings; and this collection includes the 7 page sequence in which Calvin transmogrifies himself into an elephant. Thus, fans of the series will want to include this"treasury" in their collections. ( )
