Format: Mass Market Paperback
A paper back version of the some of the strips from the first Calvin and Hobbes book. Small enough to fit in a bag, it can cheer you up on the train or bus. I read the whole thing in an hour and laughed all the way through. Great for anyone who hasn't read Calvin and Hobbes before.

Calvin and Hobbes is a cartoon strip which was written by Bill Watterson and is undoubtedly one of the best funny comic strips. Essentially it is the story of a super imaginative young boy and his 'stuffed' tiger Hobbes.
This item is a small paper back book containing some of the first comic strips. It's small enough to travel with and is a great introduction to someone who is unaware of Calvin and Hobbes - I bought for my other half for this reason, along with volume two and three. He loves it! :)

You know you're a Calvin and Hobbes fan if you pack a volume in your bag each day to read during the lunch break :)

These little books are adorable, and a must for completing the collection!

I have the whole set of Calvin and Hobbes books from years ago, but my 9 1/2 year old daughter wanted to have her own.
So got her this for Christmas, and she loves it. She never realised how funny a book could be.
They always made me laugh and now a new generation are finding them funny and laughing too.

I bought this because many previous reviews refer to essays by the author [and some coloured images.] but this copy contains only cartoons that are available in other collections. Calvin & Hobbes are wonderful, and this is a smaller format than the other collections, just so long as you know what you're getting...

Bill Watterson's 'Calvin & Hobbes' are one of the most delightful cartoon creations...ever. Calvin is the very model of childhood innocence, imagination, and inquisitiveness. I have a 4 year old cousin whom I am going to mold in Calvin's image - he is so delightful a character. Where would Calivn be without Hobbes? His ever present animal companion. The pair wax lyrical on matters philosophical, political, and psychological. Calvin & Hobbes can be consumed en masse or in bitesize chunks - either are equally rewarding. I suggest a few strips each night before bed, to send you to sleep with a chuckle.

I bought this book for my husband, but all the family just loves it including my 5 year old daughter who tries to read it herself. Also the delivery was quick.
