I will have to say that this my favorite book of the Calvin and Hobbes. At night when I can't sleep I pick out one of these collection books and read for hours. Homicidal Phyco Jungle Cat is the one that I mostly read. I like to read about how Calvin gets in trouble at school and at home, his adventures with Space Man Spiff and Stupendus Man, but his discoveries with his best friend Hobbes. When Mr. Watterson was still writting Calvin and Hobbes comics the first comic strip I would read on Sunday morning in the paper was Calvin and Hobbs. Since I can't read them in the papers I like to read these books.

It's time for more fun with Calvin and Hobbes. This book covers nine months and seems to contain more stand alone strips than actual stories, although there are several recurring gags. For example, we get lots of Calvin's take on modern art as he creates snow sculptures. In a strip that scarily is even more appropriate today than it was 20 years ago, Calvin's lemonade stand fails because of the high prices he is charging. Missing in this book is babysitter Rosalyn, and bully Mo only gets one appearance.

As far as multiple day story arcs go, Calvin starts getting mysterious letters in the mail. Who is sending them? What will the messages say? Late in the book, we get another episode with Get Rid Of Slimy girlS (G.R.O.S.S.) as they plot to ensnare neighbor Susie in a fiendish trap to lure her behind the house to hit her with water balloons. Calvin's alter ego Stupendous Man makes an appearance to take a history test for Calvin. Calvin makes a deal with Susie to eats worms for money. And as Christmas approaches, Calvin tries to figure out just how good he has to be to get presents from Santa.

Despite the lack of long running stories, there are many great strips in this book. I've read it I don't know how many times, and I still managed to laugh my way through it this weekend. The artwork is perfect for helping fill in the story as well.

This was a wonderful comic strip I still miss. If you don't have this book, pick it up today.

My son has sort of assumed ownership of my Calvin and Hobbes collection, and I am in the process of replacing the books with new ones as they are starting to fall to bits. I bought Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat for him in furtherance of this undertaking, and unfortunately he's barely had a look-in since it arrived!

Calvin's antics continue unabated in this, one of the later colour Sunday books. By this point in the series the characters and themes were so finely drawn and well-established that the stories flow with fantastic precision and timing - and are absolutely hilarious as a result. Calvin's interplay with his parents - particularly around those tasks that his dad says `build character,' the anguished inner conflict he experiences when he has to be good at Christmas, and his general nihilistic rants at a modern world that demands you have to be educated and then employed all come together in a superb collection of panel and full-page strips that you will instantly lose yourself in and feel like you've done a thousand sit-ups when you've finished laughing.

As well as being a joy to have and hold, the full-page, full-colour spreads beautifully capture Calvin's outlook on life, and allowed Watterson to flex his artistic muscles in a way that the standard newspaper formats prohibited. It doesn't take too long to read cover to cover - maybe an hour or two - but once you've picked it up you won't put it down again until you've finished it, but personally I can think of no better way to spend £12 and an afternoon. If you don't immediately love Calvin & Hobbes, then I'm afraid you have no soul.

But C&H is not empty soundbite humour - there is an intelligence and honesty about the writing that can really give you a fresh perspective on the world without being preachy.

Having read and re-read many of the strips and collections, I can say with certainty that this was one of the best. The wit, the sly in-jokes his father has with him, to the dinner time adventures Calvin has. The full page strip of Calvin's stomach trying to digest his meal is a cracker. Quite simply, you will not regret buying this collection.

Well, "Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat" is by far the most sadisitc of the series, and the best. It holds this honor for many reasons, probably the most obvious, though, is the 'traffic safety poster contest.' That strip was pure gold. Definitely read this, but read the others first (that way, you build up to this one).After this one,the best are probably "Something Under The Bed Is Drooling," and "Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons."

This is good book that explores the deeper, philosophical side of Calvin. However, if you're looking for a lot of babysitter abuse, Spaceman Spiff antics, or Sally getting water ballooned, you'll be disappointed. Younger ones will not get most of the humor, although you may want to save this one for them when they grow up ; they'll get it then.

This is by far the best Calvin and Hobbes book ever written. It contains Calvin as Stupendous Man trying to pass his test, mean letters from Hobbes, and a best poster contest. Spaceman Spiff will leave you laughing and so will the dinosaour ones. Heck the whole book will leave you laughing. You're going to want to read more and more of it.
