I have to say, we had the whole collection of Calvin and Hobbes books for our 3 sons growing up. Not to get too personal, but it was voted the best "Bathroom" reading material in the house! The fond memories of our sons reading the books, laughing out loud, and then running to my husband and the two of them laughing just made it a "must get" for me. The humor is not dirty or foul, and the antics that it depicts ...well, my boys still called stuffed peppers "monkey brains"! :)
The reading is quick, the wit is great, and the book ends way too quickly!
