"Calvin and Hobbes provided an exhilarating blend of fantasy, sophistication, pungent humor and superb drawing that was dazzling." —The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio

With keen insight, Bill Watterson depicted life through the eyes of a child in Calvin and Hobbes—with all the inherent fun and frustrations. Through the adventures of this engaging pair, the limits of our imaginations were challenged as we enjoyed accompanying Calvin and Hobbes as they traveled through time, transmogrified themselves, and stirred up trouble.

Watterson's vibrant characterization of event and personality, deft artistic presentation, and whimsical perspective have cultivated an unwavering affection for his characters. In The Revenge of the Baby-Sat, readers can relish the opportunity to dwell once more in the enduring reminder of life as a child today.

Simply superb: original and imaginative, hilarious and thoughtful, passionate and sweet.

I think this one's my favorite Calvin and Hobbes collection. In it, Mr. Watterson tries his hand at a couple of more "serious" storylines, namely the "Propeller Beanie" tale and the sequence in which Calvin's home gets burgled. I think he handled both tales well, melding realistic events with Calvin's weird take on reality. And, of course, there's the usual Calvinity afoot, including the origin of G.R.O.S.S. (I would have thought that institution had started earlier in the strip's history. Good thing I'm rereading the collections so I can get things straight, eh?)--J.

It's weird. It's almost as though Bill Watterson had spies trailing me to get ideas, because Calvin reminds me a lot of myself when I was a kid. Not doing his homework, putting assignments off till the last minute, doing a crummy job, getting bad grades, eating spoonfuls of sugar and reading comic books and such. (Of course, I never had a stuffed animal I pretended was real, though.) Anyhow, this is definitely one of the best! I loved the one where Calvin pretends he's Spaceman Spiff, hanging upside down from his spaceship and in reality, Calvin's Mom is trying to push him out the door and Calvin's hanging on upside-down for dear life. 'GO...TO...SCHOOL!' 'NOOOOOO!' LOL! The stories in this book are phenomenal! The very first G.R.O.S.S. series, where Calvin and Hobbes push the car out of the driveway and Calvin putting together a last-minute bug collection, are hilarious, bust-a-gut laughter! 'One drowned worm, one piece of fuzzy lint that looks like a bug, a live ant and a smashed fly.' And of course, the babysitter episode where Calvin threatens to flush Roz's notes down the toilet. 'You scummy little troll!' One of Bill Watterson's Best!!!!

Calvin and Hobbes are the kind of book that remind you of the nostalgia of childhood. I was six when i started reading Calvin and Hobbes and i'm still reading them today. Bill Waterson was a definite genius in every aspect and i respect him for not selling out Calvin and Hobbes. It just wouldn't have been the same.
