Best bathroom reading material anyone can buy. They last for decades if a person swaps them out from time to time to another digest full of laughs.
This is not a reflection of any Calvin & Hobbes digest or Bill Watterson, but I couldn't read any of the books I ordered. None of the books would open with Kindle for PC's on either my laptop or desktop & my android tablet couldn't accept them either, so all went to a refund request, within 30 minute after purchase, which I got within 3-5 days. I received notice within 3 days that the refund process had begun, my CC was reimbursed on day 5, so no issues there.
I was & still am very disappointed I could not complete the purchase of the 7 Calvin & Hobbes digests I ordered. I was really looking forward to reading while I spend endless working on TimeLapse shoots of Aurora Borealis, meteor showers & astronomical delights throughout the universe.
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.Read more ›
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!
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.

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.Published on June 25 2014 by Raven
