Sometimes I, a parent of a child too-smart-for-his-own-good, get a little fed-up with Calvin. But said child and I both agree that Watterson is a genius. ( )

I would give it 6 stars if I could. I would give all Calvin and Hobbes 6's. This Calvin and Hobbes was especially funny because it was mostly his summer which was extra funny. And it is his winter too. I like the snow scenes. ( )

The Days are Just Packed is a Calvin and Hobbes Treasury about a boy named Calvin and his stuffed tiger Hobbes. Calvin and Hobbes go on all kinds of adventures. Calvin goes to school and gets pushed around by this bully Moe. Calvin always gets weird dreams and wonders what they all mean. I thought this book was very funny!

Sadly this is the only Calvin and Hobbes I've read. What a completely fantastic comic strip (especially compared to the crap they print now). Must! Read! More! ( )

A childhood favorite, and one I've read countless times. Highly worth reading if you haven't already. And if you have. If you're not familiar with Calvin and Hobbes, give it a shot. ( )

That's the whole problem with science. You've got a bunch of empiricists trying to describe things of unimaginable wonder. (Calvin)
