The Wisdom of Calvin and Hobbes

I can think of few books in my library that have had been as perennially popular as Bill Watterson‘s Calvin and Hobbes series. The principled and reclusive Watterson, who, since 1995 has gone on to other things, has the enviable gift of being able to combine sheer visual delight and entertainment with pithy observances like, “Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us”. Edd McCracken has gathered Sixteen Things Calvin and Hobbes Said Better Than Anyone Else for our enjoyment.
