It's best to let Watterson speak for himself. Some choice selections from this book:

Not much to say - Calvin and Hobbes.
aPriL does feral sometimes
I am an old woman, so I have read literally thousands of comics. 'Calvin and Hobbes' are the best comics I have ever read. If I wasn't planning on cremation, I would ask to be buried with a 'Calvin and Hobbes' book. (Second choice would be 'Doonesbury'.) ...more

Last few days I've spent on getting to know Calvin and Hobbes, reading all I could put my hands or lay my eyes on :)
This is definitely my favourite issue, specifically the snow goons part and the Duplicator fun :) I've read this over a Thursday morning coffee and I just felt sorry afterwards that I rushed to read it all asap.

My personal highlight was the: "Hobbes, do you think our morality is defined by our actions, or by what's in our hearts?
I think our actions SHOW what's in our hearts."

I don’t know if a family, much less a childhood, without Calvin and Hobbes would be complete. Frankly, once it stopped being published, my newspaper readership dropped off significantly. Everyone needs to smile, needs a little imagination in their life, and needs a little bit of Calvin and Hobbes.

And if anyone is up for a game of Calvinball, just give me a call.

I'm a big Calvin and Hobbes and this collection is one of my favourites. Brilliant and a must read!

2020: still delightful! I love how Hobbes is a stuffed animal when others are around. Calvin’s shenanigans in the snow are hysterical!

This one is maybe a little darker than what went before. But still hilarious, true and beautifully drawn.

A+++ 10/10 Absolutely recommended. <3 I don't know how Bill Watterson kept doing it! ...more
Calvin is an academic underachiever, rebel, performance artist, disgruntled philosopher, and all-around bringer of chaos--although his playmate/rival Susie refers to him as "the incurable weirdness poster child." Whether discovering a new dinosaur species (the "Calvinosaurus") or evading the dreaded monster under the bed, Calvin is hilarious.

"Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons" refers to one of these story lines in which Calvin creates a mutant snow man which in turn create

My favorite comic strips are on the bottom of page 47, middle of page 74, and top of page 101.

A cartoon strip that makes you laugh, makes you wonder, makes you reminisce, makes you cry...Calvin & Hobbes is just pure joy. Some strips don't even need words, others have entire monologues scrawled onto 3 or 4 tiny boxes, and yet all of them capture your attention and leave you feeling better than before. Just quality work through and through. ...more

The best comic strip ever written, in my humble opinion, with The Far Side and Peanuts not far behind. Calvin battles his parents, his teacher, the doctor, the monsters under the bed, the snow goons, his neighbor Susie, and sometimes Hobbes. He also sometimes battles himself, like when he remembers that Santa is watching; and even his ethicator-enhanced duplicator-created always-good duplicate when said duplicate is too kind to Susie Derkins. Friendship, mischief, imagination, and lots of fun.

“Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons” is a delightful Calvin and Hobbes collection with lots of strips and storylines that focus on winter activities. There are quite a few of the famous philosophical sled rides with Calvin and Hobbes careening down dangerous hills while pondering some of the most significant aspects of our daily lives.
Also included in this collection were the strips featuring Calvin being “attacked” by his bike, coincidently while he is learning to ride it.

If there's ever a moment when you want to laugh and smile, just ask the help of Calvin and his best friend Hobbes. You can never go wrong. ...more

This book is my favorite in the series. The title is very promising, and you get a lot of Calvin’s snowmen indeed.

Hobbes is amazing: he is skeptical, sarcastic, and infinitely wise. Furthermore, he takes advantage of his feral self against Calvin a lot...

Calvin’s duplicator is a fantastic invention. Completing it with an Ethicator makes it more effective, creating the good side of Calvin. It is a truly laugh-out-loud moment when Calvin and Hobbes get rid of the good Calvin, who becomes really

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My son is 8 years old. He loves Calvin and Hobbes. It has humor for him, and for us - his parents. It also gives us an opportunity to teach him advanced words when desired.

I loved Calvin and Hobbes when it first came out. Now I get to love it all over again through the eyes of my son as we all read it tog

Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons
They've been planning attack for many moons!
Beware! Beware! Beware, beware, beware!
Calvin and Hobbes to the rescue
To hide and panic and defeat them, too!
Beware! Beware! Beware, beware, beware!
How do they defeat the monsters of snow?
The answer is unknown--oh no!

The solution is just under their nose

Only Calvin could see advantages in being sick and having to stay away from other kids. And away from school. Calvin's bitter enemy surfaces in this volume: the deadly bicicle. It's amazing to which lengths he goes to to explain his bad behavior near Christmas. He's such a victim of circumstance. The PI story is hilarious and riddled with mysoginistic references like any good pulp novel should be. He is adorable when he breaks the fourth wall. I'm so glad I picked up this collection. ...more

Great collection of strips that id never read before. Novels and bios are great, but a good collection of comic strips like this is an easier read, whether it's a single story strip or stretches out over a few. The humor for this strip is always funny, I wish it still ran in newspapers. ...more
