One of my favourite C&H books,
This review is from: The Calvin And Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book (Paperback)
Every Calvin and Hobbes book is a work of genius. But I think I prefer this book because, not only does it feature a great collection of strips, but it also features commentary from the man himself: Bill Watterson.
I must admit here that I am a freak for behind-the-scenes stuff. I like no better than to read/watch/listen to/laugh at something I enjoy, then learn what went on to make it what it was. Watterson also explains the origins and influences of Calvin and Hobbes, and why there is no lisenced merchandise for these two (he has an admirable reason: artisitic integrity, something sadly lacking these days). Though this is why I love this book so, I think anyone who enjoys Calvin and Hobbes will enjoy this, if only because Bill Watterson's writing is as funny as his strips.
If you already like Calvin and Hobbes, this is an essential addition to your collection. If you're new to them, I don't see why this shouldn't be your next book.
