A collection of mostly early Calvin and Hobbes strips. I'm deducting a star because of the fact that the Sunday comics are printed without color. Bill Watterson considered the colors to be an important part of his artistic expression, which is why he colored all the Sunday strips himself. ( )

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 accidentally leaves Hobbes at home, causing a panic when he fears his tiger has been taken by the thieves. This leads to some great introspection from Mom, Dad, and Calvin as they consider what has happened.

Once again, everyone should have some Calvin and Hobbes in their lives, it's just good sense! ( )

These really are laugh-out-loud funny. You'll probably annoy everyone around you. Not five stars though because when Calvin gets too terribly petty or whiny it wears me out. ( )

Funny, and full of action. ( )

One of my 'Classic Three'!!!: This book, along with Snow Goons, and Scientific Progreess, are my favorite Calvin and Hobbes books (I own) so far. The stories about Tracer Bullet, Spaceman Spiff, and Roasalyn are two thumbs and two claws up! Excellent!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0836218663, Paperback)

"Calvin and Hobbes provided an exhilarating blend of fantasy, sophistication, pungent humor and superb drawing that was dazzling." --The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio

With keen insight, Bill Watterson depicted life through the eyes of a child in Calvin and Hobbes--with all the inherent fun and frustrations. Through the adventures of this engaging pair, the limits of our imaginations were challenged as we enjoyed accompanying Calvin and Hobbes as they traveled through time, transmogrified themselves, stirred up trouble.

Watterson's vibrant characterization of event and personality, deft artistic presentation, and whimsical perspective have cultivated an unwavering affection for his characters. In The Revenge of the Baby-Sat, readers can relish the opportunity to dwell once more in the enduring reminder of life as a child today.
