"...FURTHER BULLETINS AS EVENTS WARRENT!",
This review is from: Something Under The Bed Is Drooling: Calvin & Hobbes Series: Book Two: A Calvin and Hobbes Collection (Paperback)Calvin and Hobbes are the funniest comic strips ever created. Although Watterson has retired and does not write them anymore, it's still great to have the collections. "Something Under the Bed is Drooling" is a collection of earlier Calvin and Hobbes stips. The old ones are the best, I think. Every page is guarenteed to make you laugh.
The book is hillarious and it's fun to watch Calvin in action as he takes on his grumpy teacher, monsters, the deranged babysitter, the girl from next store, and of course, his aggravated parents.
I can never get tired of Calvin and Hobbes. Anytime that I'm feeling down or if I'm just having a god-awful day, as soon as I pick up a Calvin and Hobbes book and start reading, I'm immediately feeling better and laughing aloud. I don't care how old you are, these are ALWAYS a joy to read (especially this particular collection).
One of the funniest strips in the book is when Calvin is writing on a sheet of paper and Hobbes asks him what he is doing. Calvin tells him that he is writing his autobiography. Hobbes is confused and tells him that he's only six. Calvin simply answers, "I only have one sheet of paper."
With great comics like Calvin and Hobbes, no one is too old to enjoy them. I say buy them all while you still can. They're great to read over and over again. "Something Under the Bed is Drooling" is a fine collection of great Calvin and Hobbes strips, and it continues to be one of my favourite collections.
