    1. August 7, 2011Dear Bill, Your decade long run of Calvin and Hobbes was the greatest run of any comic strip in the history of comic strips, and you made the right choice putting an end to it when you did. I can't believe it's been gone for 16 years now. Your precocious Calvin was what every kid with an overactive imagination is in their own heads, but you also gave us the view of what the rest of the world sees in these kids and does to try and beat the imagination out of them. There's implied sa [...]

    2. My dad gave me this book Christmas 2009, and I prior to reading it last week, I had not experienced Calvin and Hobbes. Well, that isn't completely true. I had read one or two strips, I suppose. Seen other people reading it. But I hadn't experienced it. I had not sat down with a thick, luscious book full of Calvin and Hobbes strips, full of wonderful, pinpoint and intelligent humour.When I did finally sit down, I fell in love. So to all my friends out there: how dare you not kidnap me and force-f [...]

    3. My Parents swore upon their honorThat I was safe, and not a goner.I guess tomorrow they'll see their sad mistakes.Here lies Calvin, devoured in his bed by a monster. If only we had treated him better.Oh Boy, Calvin and Hobbes is way to funny and should read by every humans-person on the planet.I am laughing my heart out on this comedy book. Calvin has it all. The imagination and work the author has dedicated to this series makes me jump with excitement and everything feels so adventurous once yo [...]

    4. Calvin and Hobbes were always two of my favourite characters that I was impatient for from Sunday afternoon until Monday's paper. Every day there was a new crazy or incredibly mature statement from Calvin and his adventures with Hobbes are unforgettable. My son was initially skeptical but after just one strip, he was an addict and could not get enough! The book is nice in that it has 6 strips from the comics of the Monday to Saturday comics in black and white and a full colour page from the Sund [...]

    5. I have a confession to make. I started reading Calving and Hobbes comics because I saw my third grade crush reading them. I guess I should thank him, because once I started reading these comics, I didn't want to stop. My grandparents and parents bought me collection upon collection of Calvin and Hobbes comics. And while I didn't read the "normal" books that kids my age read, I think I had a great childhood reading these comics. They're funny, they're silly, and believe it or not, they can have s [...]

    6. Another review I just saw (almost totally unrelated oh well) reminded me I should give this five stars. I have loved C&H for years. One of my greatest disgusts with generally-sad newspaper comics is that Calvin and Hobbes are not there. Chronicling the practically endless exploits of fine young Calvin, his stuffed (?!) tiger Hobbes, and occasionally others: Calvin's wartorn parents (especially his fabulously sardonic dad), the ever-sappy neighbourhood kid Susie, and long-suffering teacher M [...]

    7. Somewhere own the street in a small house in a quite town lives every babysitter's worst nightmare. The dynamic yet meddlesome duo of the mischievous Calvin & the manipulative Hobbes. Calvin & Hobbes is a great, classic cartoon about a little boy, named Calvin, who goes on many wacky expeditions with his pet tiger, Hobbes. Everybody else sees Hobbes as a mere stuffed animal, but not Calvin. He sees Hobbes as a real tiger & a snarky one at that. Watch Calvin & his feline friend as [...]

    8. Went back to book from my childhood recently and found it as enjoyable as I did those many years ago (perhaps even more so). There was poignancy in Calvin & Hobbes I never even noticed when I was a kid. Lovely, funny, fantastic stuff.

    9. 4.5 stars. Second only to Gary Larson's "The Far Side" as my favorite cartoon series of all time. Always clever, always funny and always leaves you in a better mood. I must have for any library.

    10. I was always a Garfield kid growing up. The first things I actually remember reading as a child were Garfield books that you could get through the newsletter -- named with obesity puns like Garfield Goes to Waist. I skipped right ahead to Zits as a teenager, and Dilbert as an adult office drone (as well as XKCD, Questionable Content, The Oatmeal, The Order of the Stick, and a number of other great web comics). How exactly I missed Calvin and Hobbes I'm honestly not sure, but after seeing the ex [...]

    11. “The world isn't fair, Calvin.""I know Dad, but why isn't it ever unfair in my favor?”Mr. Watterson has achieved an incredible feat here. Not only does he accurately describe what's like being a 6 year-old child, but he also manages to pose some serious questions and comments to how the world is shaped today. You shouldn't be put off by its apparent childish state of being, cause at many times, it is much more than that, if you only read between the lines.He has also realised some of the mos [...]

    12. May not be great literature, but Bill Watterson sees something which most of us don't. My life has been diminished by not having the joy of opening the daily paper to some new insight to ourselves through his eyes.

    13. by Bill Watterson, published in 1988.Calvin and Hobbes is perhaps the best known comic strip of all time, even more so than Peanuts or Far Side. I’m a product of the eighties so maybe Bill Watterson and his creation are just part of my upbringing and I can’t help loving it.But I don’t think anybody can deny the sheer genius of this comic strip, or the laughs and joy it has brought and will continue to bring to millions of people. I’ve had the absolute pleasure of reading “The Essential [...]

    14. Ah, to be a kid again.I'll admit, it feels a little weird saying that given that it hasn't been that long since I was a kid and I'm pretty sure I'm not old enough to start reminiscing about uphill journeys in the snow before school. Still, I couldn't help but feel a sense of longing for the years of youth now gone by as I read this book. Very rarely did I read a page in the book that didn't make me think "I remember doing that" or "I remember thinking that's how the world worked". (The only time [...]

    15. I still remember that moment when his eyes began to glaze over. In all fairness, he had been at work all day, dinner was ready and I had already gone on for ten minutes. Which was a shame because I had finally reached the critical turning point. The Knights of Castle Dresser were looking down in despair at the surprise arrival of Roman legions in my model Dragonship. From the Eastern Hall they had sailed with their Viking crew to besiege the bottom drawer. I’m sure it’s partly my fault my da [...]

    16. Oh the endless bounties of insight that Calvin and Hobbes offers. There is only one reason why so many people have filtered into this page and others like it. Calvin and Hobbes resonates so profoundly with its readers due to its near perfect representation of the joys of adventure and discovery. To treat the series as an "escape" from reality does not do the strip justice. Like all artists, Watterson does not shackle us into his world. Rather, like a kind, older brother vigorously rousing his yo [...]

    17. As Mrs. Messmer mentioned about the Authoritative Calvin & Hobbes book, there were a LOT of hard-core vocabulary words that I hardly knew. But if you look them up, you can easily understand the comic. Calvin is a whiny, uncooperative 6-year-old kid who thinks the whole world revolves around him, and the stunts he pulls off makes me laugh. It kind of reminds me of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Basically, I'm talking about all the Calvin & Hobbes books, all the way up to the last comic [...]

    18. It is amazing that comics can be so rich in content. We all know that the world is 'unfair', but Calvin and Hobbes makes it more evident than anyone else. As social critiques they may be rated at par with anybody else. It becomes more interesting when Hobbes picks up a fight with Calvin and heaps his cynicism on the most cynic of all. They collaborate, engage in friendly banter and betray each other only to rip apart the entire social fabric in the process. Nothing is sacred for Calvin and nothi [...]

    19. Best. Comic Strip. Ever.I LOVE Calvin and Hobbes. Clever humor. Wonder facial expressions.My kids are now hooked as well. They didn't understand much of the humor at first, but the photos kept them intrigued. My youngest doesn't "enjoy" reading, but will beg to have one of these comic collections at bedtime.The vocabulary has challenged them. The humor and philosophical views have educated them or made them think while still managing to make them giggle.

    20. After I came out of a coma from surgery when I was a child, the first thing that I remember is my sister bringing me this book. This memory far surpassed any further memory that I had about the coma and time following it. This is a great book for me because of this, and because Bill Watterson is a genius.

    21. Sometimes you just need to step away from "big things" and try to enjoy the small little things that life sometimes offers. It feels great to be a kid again, seeing things in a different lens in very refreshing. Definitely recommended.

    22. I love Calvin and Hobbes. The brilliance of the animation and how as I'm reading I swing between who I most relate to: Calvin, Hobbes, Mom, Dad, Suzy.

    23. The best book I have read in a long time. Play, imagine, have fun, and read this book. You're life will be better for it. :)
