Magical funny cartoons for anyone.,
This review is from: The Essential Calvin and Hobbes (Paperback)
The essential Calvin and Hobbes is a large collection of Calvin and Hobbes cartoons. Calvin is a mischievous, strangely perceptive, six-year old whose best friend is his teddy tiger called Hobbes. Hobbes is a stuffed teddy to everyone else, but to Calvin, Hobbes is very real. And once you've read any Calvin and Hobbes he'll be real to you to!
This is a lovely book, a good 2-3 hour read covering most of the best stories the genius Bill Watterson wrote. Amazing perceptive and funny at the same time. Some strips will have you laughing with tears, whilst others will make you look hard at your self and wonder. Childhood memories will flood back with every page you read, and good friends will become important once again. Maybe I get more from Calvin and Hobbes than most people, but to me, this is some of the wisest, funniest, charming cartoons strips I've ever read. (and I've read a lot).
The essential Calvin and Hobbes is a great buy, with 250 pages of cartoons to read. Strips are drawn from other treasuries and books, so if you own many of there books, this may not be for you. But if you just starting on your path to reading Calvin and Hobbes this is as good a start as any!
