This was my sons passing gift (first year in high school!) ...He went from a 54% average in french to a 90% so this is WELL earned indeed!...Much cheaper than if i had walked into a Chapters store ($100.00)
Thanks for your awesome service!

I've been a fan of Calvin & Hobbes since they first came out, and bought all the yearly (or so it seemed) anthologies when they were released, happily re-reading each at intervals. Those yearly releases were paperbacks, so when this hard-back bound volume came out, I had to add it to the collection. Not only does it have every strip in it, but they are in a well-made and attractive set. What's not to like if you're a Calvin & Hobbes fan?

This may not be an inexpensive collection, but considering the content it's a good value. There's hard-bound books inside a slip case, all nicely bound and presented. As a book collector, I appreciate good bindings and presentations, and this set ranks with some of the best mass-market releases I've seen. It's durable, and likely to last.

Every Calvin & Hobbes cartoon strip and all the weekend larger strips are here, along with a set of introductory notes about how the strip came into being, and illustrated to show the development of the characters. That's interesting reading, but of course the focus is on the strips. You get three strips to a page, or one weekend strip to a page, and they are in chronological order. Having all the Calvin & Hobbes together in one collection is great, and I've enjoyed working my way through this collection enormously. Highly recommended.

It's awesome! Great prefaces by Mr. Watterson, and it was a great to remember all the good times with Calvin and Hobbes.

Awesome set - bigger and heavier than I anticipated. Really fantastic for any Calvin and Hobbes fan.

Really satisfied by the product. I saw Calvin and Hobbes a long time before without ever reading it. Now I really enjoy it.
