What a cartoon. I laughed out loud every other page.
Bill Watterson uses quirky drawings, wit, and a fantastic sense of humour to create argubly the best cartoon ever drawn/written.

This is probably the second best collection of them all, and a great place to start if you're new to the scene.

Just some of the many adventures Calvin and Hobbes have in this book are:
- Calvin finds a magic carpet (The hall rug)
- Calvin and Hobbes face off against arch-rival Susie Derkins in a water fight
- The family go camping, and it rains the whole week.
- Calvin and Hobbes test out Calvin's latest invention, a time machine
- Calvin 'secedes' from the family and attempts to migrate to the Yukon with Hobbes
- Calvin loses Hobbes in the woods
- Rosalyn babysits Calvin again
- Calvin brings Hobbes to school
- Calvin's Uncle Max visits
- Calvin works with Susie on a school project
- Calvin and Hobbes have fun with a transmogrifier gun

The beauty of Calvin and Hobbes is that it can appeal to anyone and everyone, Children, Adults, or O.A.Ps.

Get these books while you can, they are true classics of a great cartoon still printed in national newspapers, including The Daily Express.

The book arrived in just 2 days using free super-saver delivery.

Collecting cartoons originally published between May 1987 and February 1988, this is another fantastic Calvin & Hobbes collection from Bill Watterson and it's a real treat to read. Full of great strips and imagery, my highlights include fishing with rocks, a water balloon fight with Susie (that, typically, goes very badly for Calvin), a trip to the doctors, the time machine, waking up early for Santa, Uncle Max and pampering by "mom". There are two longer arcs, both of which work superbly. The first is when the family goes camping, with Dad trying to make the whole thing an adventure in the rain whilst the second gives the collection its title, as Calvin secedes from the family but, on falling out with Hobbes, quickly heads home. It's beautifully played, especially when he realises Hobbes isn't home and his Dad has to go out in the dark to get him. As funny, clever, touching and poignant as ever, this is well worth a read and very highly recommended.

You can always rely on Calvin and Hobbes to deliver the funnies. And if you're a keen reader, Calvin's unique (if rather skewed) perception of the world with keep the kid inside you alive (I don't mean this literally but as a metaphor). Unless you've been horribly deprived you'll pretty much all remember the magic of a snow storm or a sunset while sitting under a tree or an adventure in the woods or playing Monopoly with a tiger.

The title refers to a series of strips in which Calvin and Hobbes plan to escape the Yukon to be free of the repressions of family rules. Needless to say, their journey is cut short when Hobbes eats the only two sandwiches Calvin bothered to pack.

Any Calvin and Hobbes fan will already own this. Everyone else must buy!

This is the best Calvin and Hobbes book! Bill Waterson sure makes lots of funny comics. My favorite parts of this comic is when Calvin's family goes camping and it rains so hard they cant even make a fire, Also this comic has Calvin's Uncle Max. I didn't really like that part. After that they never showed Max again. Some more parts I love are when Calvin and Susie both have to do a report together and Calvin does terrible, and I love the part where Calvin creates a transmogrifier pistol and he gets stuck being an owl when it breaks. Oh and don't forget about Rosalyn, that was funny too when the police came and Calvin got in really big trouble. I think this book is a must-buy for everyone who loves Calvin and Hobbes

I loved this book because it had a poem on the first page. I thought it was funny and a bit true. The funny part is the way Calvin described the food and school. The part that was a bit true was that he wanted to leave school and make there own food. In the actaul story Hobbes gets lost and Calvin is worried sick. It shows that he loves him a lot. I love hobbes a lot also, and I wish I had the doll. I always hoped they made a doll of Calvin and Hobbes, but I don't know why they don't.

Actually my one line summary pretty much sums up my feelings. I've never seen a strip that captures its balanced elements of innocence and subversiveness as well as Watterson does. All his collections are great but this was the first i read so it remains my favourite.
