Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Beginning with the day Hobbes sprang into Calvin's tuna fish trap, the first two Calvin and Hobbes collections, Calvin and Hobbes and Something Under The Bed Is Drooling, are brought together in this treasury. Including black-and-white dailies and color Sundays, The Essential Calvin and Hobbes also features an original full-color 16-page story.

Perhaps the most brilliant comic strip ever created, Calvin and Hobbes continues to entertain with dazzling cartooning and tremendous humor.
Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes has been a worldwide favorite since its introduction in 1985. The strip follows the richly imaginative adventures of Calvin and his trusty tiger, Hobbes. Whether a poignant look at serious family issues or a round of time-travel (with the aid of a well-labeled cardboard box), Calvin and Hobbes will astound and delight you.

   Calvin and Hobbes ...The best
This book is truly wonderful. Bill Watterson is a genius. His graphics are perfect. This book was in great shape and I was so pleased to find it at Second Sale.
   Good Book! Kindle Edition Needs Work.
To read the rest of the book you have to look at it sideways. The problem is, it won't orient my iPad correctly.
   Great collection. I'm a big fan and my 7 year old is digging it now also.
This book is a big fan of Calvin and Hobbes, and I got it on the Kindle. I love that kid, My 7yo, because he's into it, too. He has a kindle and reads it on his kindle. The content is often very tough for a 7 year old _ or even completely over his head _ but he finds enough strips he likes to push through the ones aimed more at older readers.
I've read them all, and I still love them. Will reread them many times.
   Inappropriate For Young Kids
My son enjoyed reading Volumes 9 and 10 of Calvin and Hobbes so I purchased this book for him to continue the laughs and reading time. When we started reading this one together he found the animation wasn't as good as the more current volumes. He didn't find any of the first few strips funny and then I came across the strip in my included photo and shut the book, returned it to Amazon. Absolutely not appropriate for my kid.
   Protect my electrical devices
It's a great book, I keep it in my bedside. It protects my electronics from being scratched, cracked or otherwise damaged. It's great to see the product doing so well, said Dr. Steve Berryhill, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. The child will go for the entire book, become immersed in Bill Watterson's world and forget about my true wireless headphones. Before I bought this book, I spent 40 minutes digging through my dirty laundry. The boy had told me he put his headphones in the laundry, and I was looking for them. It's just that my clothes are all gray and the Jabras are also gray. If you think this book is valuable, you will not regret buying it.
   Kindle version is garbage
I bought these books and then didn't look at them for a while so it is too late for me to get my money back. Please do not buy this book. The pages rotate 90 degrees out of standard reading orientation making them unreadable. You can lock the pages, but you cannot disable the rotation. The Amazon version of this book is garbage and I was ripped off.
   Kindle Edition--Not well cone
Other graphic novels have been amazing, and I've bought other Kindle books that have been amazing, too. They just scanned in these pages and what is worse, they scanned in sideways. Sure, I can read them on my phone if I lock the pages and turn them sideways, but the zoom in is all by fingers. Even with a browser, it is virtually impossible to read this book. The screen will not rotate the word.
   Amazingly Imagination
To anyone who connects to his childish side, to anyone with an imaginative kid on their hands, or to anyone who likes to drift away once in a while, this book is a true masterpiece.
   Book binding worthless
The content of the book is amazing, no problem with that. What I take issue with is the book binding, not the book itself. It started to fall apart within 10 minutes of us acquiring it, he said. It fell to the kitchen table, and my daughter was looking at it. Then more and more, we have had for 6 weeks about now, and over half of book is loose sheets. The pages themselves are still fine, so I will take it to a store to have it spiral bound or something. It's a bummer, said Blair.
