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. ( )

Fans of Calvin & Hobbes will enjoy this collection. People who used to be fans of Calvin & Hobbes when they were younger, and now just find Calvin to be an annoying little punk who thinks he's smart, but is really just a lazy (though imaginative) slacker with a really bad attitude will wonder why in the world they still own this book.
