    This book of wisdom should be in every English teacher s bookshelf It is full of philosophy, interesting play on words, wit and humour Nary a year goes by when I don t use it in my lessons It has been my companion for over ten years now and is quite tattered now I simply love this compilation.

    Reading this as an adult was revelatory Of what, I can t exactly say But I was at a friend s home, in a strange city that will soon be my home, and I couldn t sleep I picked up this book, and realized that it really isn t meant for children Or, at least, not just for children I read all of Watterson s books when I was a kid, and I now know how much I missed, and how much I absorbed.

    This is the first Calvin Hobbes book I ve purchased since elementary school Back then, my parents would give me an allowance whenever the Scholastic Book Catalog was passed around the classroom and I would almost always buy a Calvin Hobbes collection My parents encouraged me to read something of value when I could, so they d talk me out of sticker books and lesser kid titles like Captain Poopbutt His Wacky Goof Smile Crew or some shit This was fine, since I always tried to read at a hig This is the first Calvin Hobbes book I ve purchased since elementary school Back then, my parents would give me an allowance whenever the Scholastic Book Catalog was passed around the classroom and I would almost always buy a Calvin Hobbes collection My parents encouraged me to read something of value when I could, so they d talk me out of sticker books and lesser kid titles like Captain Poopbutt His Wacky Goof Smile Crew or some shit This was fine, since I always tried to read at a higher level For instance, I read a bunch of Michael Chrichton in junior high Guess what happens when you re some barely teenage spaz launching his way through puberty and reading techno thrillers without understanding basic science It messes up your brain and you start wanting to only talk about time travel in biology class.But, when I read Calvin Hobbes, it was sort of this weird hybrid piece of childhood and adulthood It wasn t some coming of age tale or some hyperactive meta fiction Calvin and Hobbes, as comic characters, did a number on me, as they were loud and adventurous while, in turn, quietly discussing philosophy Looking back, I probably scored a heavy helping of social interpretation from the two It s pretty hard to get a kid to consider morality and mortality, but, somehow, when Calvin posed a question to Hobbes in the woods or in the wagon, there came a serious pondering of existence in this great big world.I ve read through my Calvin Hobbes collections dozens of times, over the years, every year To read Calvin Hobbes comics this week, ones that I ve never previously read, was some sort of hellfire crash of excitement and nostalgia It was the first comic strip I ever loved It was the first thing my father and I ever discussed like literary men It was the first characters that I thought made eloquent and constructive sense of wise assing.This particular collection got a five star rating from me before I even read it Bill Watterson spent his years as a cartoonist having an open discussion about the wants and drags of mankind and the nervous wonderment of people, all while letting an uncontrollable kid s imagination run wild with his closest friend It was perfect then and it s perfect now

    The shock I felt upon learning Bill Watterson was discontinuing his Calvin and Hobbes series has never left me I needed those comics They weren t just funny they were touching and so very clever Today s comics and graphic novels have not come close to the feelings, emotions and intelligence Watterson was able to convey in a few short panels Hopefully Watterson will return to us in full force The world needs himthan ever.
