    I have an uncle who I ll call Uncle Bob Uncle Bob is an extremely tall man he has a booming voice and commanding presence When he s in the room, it s hard not to pay attention to Uncle Bob And that s good for him, because he likes the attention he laughs and jokes constantly, and loves a good audience In short, he s a natural born salesman So Uncle Bob naturally excelled when he got his first job out of college selling tractors In fact, he was so good that now he trains everyone else Hi I have an uncle who I ll call Uncle Bob Uncle Bob is an extremely tall man he has a booming voice and commanding presence When he s in the room, it s hard not to pay attention to Uncle Bob And that s good for him, because he likes the attention he laughs and jokes constantly, and loves a good audience In short, he s a natural born salesman So Uncle Bob naturally excelled when he got his first job out of college selling tractors In fact, he was so good that now he trains everyone else His company is very fond of him, so he has plenty of vacation, which he uses to fish, to play card games, and to snowmobile He is not a man of literature So I was naturally intrigued to find him, one day, curled up over a book, snickering loudly What book could it be None other than this one Curious, I started leafing through it when he left it on the table I loved it I showed it to my brother, and he loved it too What a great comic Maybe Uncle Bob s a man of literature after all

    I just happened to pick this book up while visiting a friend, and, the next thing I knew, it was hours later I read these when they were originally syndicated in my hometown newspaper, and I read Scientific Progress Goes Boinkand The Revenge of the Baby Sat I could read these a million times and still want to read them again.These are definitely written to be appreciated on several levels, which is what makes them so rereadable I had one perspective on them when I was young, and another no I just happened to pick this book up while visiting a friend, and, the next thing I knew, it was hours later I read these when they were originally syndicated in my hometown newspaper, and I read Scientific Progress Goes Boinkand The Revenge of the Baby Sat I could read these a million times and still want to read them again.These are definitely written to be appreciated on several levels, which is what makes them so rereadable I had one perspective on them when I was young, and another now that I m all grown up, myself Calvin s antics aren t laugh out loud funny any, but bittersweet now that I can imagine raising such a holy terror And the section about the break in at their home, instead of inspiring boredom, seems very apt, and I can sympathize with the parents I finally see the humor in Calvin s declaration that this is the coolest thing to happen to him.Most interesting is that I never understood how a bright kid like Calvin could do so poorly in school It makes sense now, and I even understand why I didn t see it, before Calvin s school isn t about nurturing creativity or teaching children to use their gifts It s about teaching kids to sit down, shut up, and do their homework Calvin is at his worst when he s told to obey for reasons that make no sense to him, and so of course he s going to the principal s office daily.Watterson also manages to paint a decent view of the female perspective, despite Calvin s view of girls as gross and slimy, and his mother as a dispenser of disgusting food, clean laundry, and torturous baths I got the feeling that he really gets it.I need to remember to brighten my view with one of these books from time to time We all need a littleimagination in our lives

    Trying to choose a favorite Calvin and Hobbes book really is not entirely unlike trying to choose a favorite child These books were a seminal part of my childhood I ve reread them so many times throughout childhood, the teen years, and adulthood that I m not exaggerating when I say that if you start quoting one of the strips, I can almost guarantee that I ll be able to give you the punchline from memory The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes is a treasury made up of what may be my two favorite Trying to choose a favorite Calvin and Hobbes book really is not entirely unlike trying to choose a favorite child These books were a seminal part of my childhood I ve reread them so many times throughout childhood, the teen years, and adulthood that I m not exaggerating when I say that if you start quoting one of the strips, I can almost guarantee that I ll be able to give you the punchline from memory The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes is a treasury made up of what may be my two favorite Calvin and Hobbes books Revenge of the Baby Sat and Scientific Progress Goes Boink I think the bulk of all my all time favorite CH storylines are in here, including Calvin forgetting his bug report until the last minute literally, the last minute , the Garage as Clubhouse incident probably when I laughed the hardest at the strip , their first time traveling adventure You mean we went into the past because we were FACING THE WRONG WAY , the army of Calvin clones, Calvin signing up to play baseball at recess all my inner childhood angst about organized sports seemed to have been poured upon the page for this storyline and my absolute all time favorite, which I still relate to so strongly today Calvin s mail order beanie.If I could only have one Calvin and Hobbes book, it would be this collection Thankfully, I m pleased to say I ve got them all Although, I really need to start buying new copies A lot of them are falling apart from being reread so often

    The best thing about the Calvin and Hobbes books is that I grew up just looking at the pictures because I didn t read English, but found them so funny nevertheless Then, when I learned English and was finally able to read them, they were even funnier because I could finally understand what the characters were saying And as I grow a bit older and wiser, I still laugh whenever I crack one open, but for entirely different reasons I love how there is something for every age in these books.

    Because, come on Who can say no to Calvin and Hobbes I practically grew up on the duo, and my whole family loved him, me and my sibs and father would share these books Fantastic art, and fantastic stories both humorous and poignant, though I sure as hell am glad Calvin isn t my brother or kid.
