The very first Calvin and Hobbes collection by the inimitable Bill Watterson, with an introduction by Garry Trudeau. We meet six-year-old Calvin and his trusty sidekick Hobbes for the first time, and are thoroughly drawn into their fantastical world.
From back of book: "Most people who write comic dialogue for minors demonstrate surprisingly little feel for - or faith in- the original source material, that is, childhood, in all its unfettered and winsome glory. It is in this respect that Bill Watterson has proved as unusual as his feckless creations, Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson is the reporter who's gotten it right, childhood as it actually is."
