Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Revenge Of The Baby-Sat: Calvin & Hobbes Series: Book Eight (Calvin and Hobbes) (Paperback)
Another cracking collection (circa early 90s), this runs through the year so we get the seasons and panels relative to them - camping out in the wilds, when only Dad is interested; Hobbes not getting a Christmas present, apart from a lovely hug from Calvin - and it works brilliantly. Stand-outs include the reading of bedtime stories being a Dad’s job (“you didn’t do the dishes?”), the formation of G.R.O.S.S. (Get Rid Of Slimey girlS) and the panel “I hope some day I’m as a smart as [Dad}” - “Why, what did he say now?” This also has the sequence where the house gets burgled and takes the brave move of exploring all three main characters’ reactions to it. Wonderfully heartwarming, funny as anything, this is well worth a read and very highly recommended!
