5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute smash (like all others) July 22 2003
Who can get enough of Calvin and Hobbes? Certainly no one on this earth. Maybe on planet 5 or 6. Calvin and Hobbes are delightful in this collection of strips. Because of the time it was published the Sunday strips in Snow Goons are not reprinted in color in other books, save several that appear in specialized Calvin and Hobbes volumes, which are available at Amazon.
Just because the Sundays lack color does not diminish the hilarity in them. This book in full of laughs and not to be missed by any Calvin and Hobbes freaks (you know who you are) or by one seeking the "Best Medicine."
The book kicks off with two stories. Calvin gets a typical kid's disease. The next story takes place at the dinner table, which, with Calvin, is asking for trouble. Family values are expressed and Calvin's reactions to them are priceless. "It's impolite to leave the table in the middle of a meal." "So what am I suppposed to do? Just SIT here and watch you guys CHEW?! Among other things, Cretaceous beasts appear. Calvin's deadly two wheeled, one chained, metal menace develops devious hunting techniques. Calvin's dad is given a very visual report of his foundering in the polls. Calvin becomes lightening. Calvin tries bungee jumping. The wagon is brutalized again. Calvin's dad is confronted about cultural issues. G.R.O.S.S. launches an assault upon a certain female neighbor and classmate. Calvin struggles to learn math, now with assistance from the father figure. Spiff finds yet another few planets overlooked by the rest of human civilization. Another intense match of Calvinball unfolds. Stupendous Man and Tracer Bullet bring justice to the world. An updated Duplicator adds another few luaghs. And Calvin also, unwittingly, creates an army of deranged mutant killer monster snow goons who lack remorse for anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't read this review, just get it, period! March 8 2003
By Kobe
This is one of the best books I have ever read! Calvin is a boy who does some pretty wierd things, and says some too! Calvin gets in trouble constantly, with his stuffed animal Hobbes behind him all the way. The jokes that this book has to offer are awesome! The jokes don't always need that many words. Let me give you an example. It shows the steps Calvins' mom uses to get ready for work in the morning, such as putting on a new dress, makeup, and stuff like that. Then she walks down the stairs and out the door only to find herself sprayed with a hose from Calvin! Then it shows Calvin in his room rubbing his butt and saying,"What a grouch!"
This book is great for you if you love to laugh and you think even jokes that don't make you laugh your hide off but still are really pretty funny. If you are like this, no matter what age you are you will like this book!
You will probaly not like this book as much if you duslike commics and don't laugh at things sometimes that may not be so unbelievably funny.
I highly recomend this book and it is great to read something that isn't a tomb but isn't Barney! This is more than just than a book about a kid with an every day life, trust me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best strips March 17 2002
There's no reason to explain WHY Calvin and Hobbes is an excellent comic, but I'd like to explain why this book features some of the best C&H strips of all time.
When I think back at when I was 6 years old, some of my best memories are those from the summer and winter: When I played in either the hot sun or the cold snow, this is why I came to love Calvin's philosophical conversations with Hobbes when, in the summer, riding down the hill in his trolley and his grotesque but also fantastic creations in the snow(Dinosaurs, monsters etc.) They make me reflect on my own childhood and make me laugh, and after reading a few pages one easily becomes nostalgic.
Almost all of the strips in this book take place either in the summer or the winter, and there are many funny conversations with Hobbes and good drawings of Calvin's hideous snowmen in this book. It's one of my favourite C&H books, and if you haven't bought it yet I suggest you get it soon.
It's so good, you can't afford not to buy it.

"Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons," by Bill Watterson, is a collection of comic strip adventures of Calvin, the feisty schoolboy, and his companion Hobbes, a stuffed tiger. The strips generally form short stories within the book. The book's title refers to one of these storylines, in which Calvin creates a mutant snow man which in turn creates an army of similar creatures. Other storylines involve Calvin getting chicken pox; his creation of his own TV show; and his club known as GROSS (a warped acronym for "Get Rid Of Slimy girlS").
The C&H stories are great because they are funny celebrations of the power of a child's imagination. Calvin assumes such alternate identities as sci-fi hero Spaceman Spiff, caped superhero Stupendous Man, and private eye Tracer Bullet. Often the humor comes from the clash of Calvin's fantasies with the reality around him. The stuffed Hobbes, through the power of Calvin's imagination, becomes both a comrade and a great foil for the boy; their wacky relationship is one of the most memorable in the comic strip genre.
Calvin is an academic underachiever, rebel, performance artist, disgruntled philosopher, and all-around bringer of chaos -- although his playmate/rival Susie refers to him as "the incurable weirdness poster child." Whether discovering a new dinosaur species (the "Calvinosaurus") or evading the dreaded monster under the bed, Calvin is hilarious. And you've got to love a comic that cites the U.S. Bill of Rights. "Attack" is a great book both for C&H fans and for newcomers to this excellent comic strip.

Not as funny or relevent today - of course the times have changed and I am older now. Still cute and gave me some chuckles. More for kids though I would say.
