Calvin, the six-year-old dirty tricksmeister and master of indignation and his warm, cuddly philosopher sidekick and Hobbes, a tiger whose idea of adventure is to lie on his back by the fire and have his stomach rubbed. This unlikely due captured the hearts, the minds, and, most of all, the funny bones of America. The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes contains an original full-color section, as well as all the cartoons appearing in The Revenge of the Baby-Sat and Scientific Progress Goes "Boink." All Sunday cartoons are presented in full-color.

The "Indispensable" Calvin & Hobbes Treasury was originally published back in 1992. This entertaining book contains numerous cartoons from the ever-popular "Calvin and Hobbes" comic strip.

For anyone who's not at all familiar with the "Calvin and Hobbes" cartoon - Here's a brief outline of what one can expect to see in this volume.... This cartoon follows the often-humorous adventures (both real and fantasized) of Calvin, a precocious, mischievous and very outspoken 6-year-old rugrat, and his sardonic, stuffed tiger, Hobbes.

Together these 2 rascals (especially Calvin) get themselves into all sorts of comical predicaments that cover such broad issues as public education, philosophical quandaries, environmentalism, and flaws of opinion polls (to name but a few).

At the height of its popularity - "Calvin and Hobbes" was featured in over 2400 newspapers, worldwide.
