It is a magical world indeed. The great thing about Calvin is that he is a boy who thinks as a child, so it's funny and it also makes you go back to your own childhood. Worth reading. ( )

A nice anthology of Calvin and Hobbes comic Strips. This one isn't a favourite - too much philosophy, too much stereotypes. But still way better than many other comics. ( )

Fantastic!!! ( )

I love Calvin and Hobbes and emulate them a bit in my own book. Little Pegleg has his 'Calvin' moments for sure. Spaceman Spiffis one of my favorite alter-egos for Calvin. And who doesn't like Hobbes 'the chick magnet'? Definately a classic for all time, especially looking back to a simpler time in our youth (at least my youth). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0836221362, Paperback)

When cartoonist Bill Watterson announced that his phenomenally popular cartoon strip would be discontinued, Calvin and Hobbes fans throughout the world went into mourning. Fans have learned to survive -- despite the absence of the boy and his tiger in the daily newspaper. It's a Magical World delivers all the satisfaction of visiting its characters once more. Calvin fans will be able to see their favorite mischief maker stir it up with his furry friend, long-suffering parents, classmate Susie Derkins, school teacher Miss Wormwood, and Rosalyn the baby-sitter. It's a Magical World includes full-color Sundays and has it all: Calvin-turned-firefly waking Hobbes with his flashlight glow; courageous Spaceman Spiff rocketing through alien galaxies as he battles Dad-turned-Bug-Being; and Calvin's always inspired snowman art. There's no better way for Watterson fans to savor again the special qualities of their favorite strip.
