Calvin & Hobbes Books, Tenth Anniversary Book Paperback – September 5, 1995
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
Now that Bill Watterson has retired from drawing syndicated cartoons, the only way to get our Calvin and Hobbes fixes is through his book collections. The 10th Anniversary Book is particularly notable, because in addition to getting some of his most wonderful cartoons, we also gain a sense of Watterson as a person.
Approximately one-tenth of the book contains essays about matters great and small--from cartooning to life--and stories about the inspiration behind some of his greatest strips. Not surprisingly, Watterson shines through as a being of considerable integrity, and the cartoons gain in depth thanks to his commentary. And, of course, the cartoons in the other 90% of the book are alternately side-splitting hilarious or touching. Happy Anniversary, Bill, and good luck with whatever it is you are doing now!

I will say, the Kindle version (Only works in the app or on a fire tablet) is stunning. It is easy to navigate and crystal clear. Very well done. Get this for your kids. Let them read and learn to use their imagination. Put that tablet to good use.
I bought all three (Essential, Indispensable, and Authoritative) for my Kindle-on-iPad. The strips are clear enough and I do enjoy them, but they do not fill the iPad screen and, amazingly, you CANNOT adjust the reader to eliminate the useless letter-boxing on all four sides. I have at least a one inch border on all four sides of the screen, wasting considerable screen space. As a result, the art and fonts are small and unnecessarily difficult to read.
I don't regret my purchase and I do love C&H and having it on my Kindle (iPad). But the porting to Kindle was poorly done and detracts from what should and could have been a 5 star experience.
I look at the world, Instead of watching tv all day as a youngster I did the things Calvin did. I dug for treasure in my backyard, I went for wagon rides down steep hills in the woods, I played every day in the snow and made tons of snowmen in front of my dads car.
I have come to realize that Calvin and Hobbes is not just a funny comic strip for a quick laugh, its so much more than that. Its looking at the world through different eyes and changing your perspective. Overall Calvin has changed me and I will never be the same.
If you have never gone through a Calvin and Hobbes book please do and you will come to love this boy and his tiger.
