I bought this for my kids. My oldest is nine and his brother is about to turn eight. At first I thought some of the satire might be a bit over their heads. And in some cases, it is. But overall, they love it. They enjoy the humor and the imagination. They laugh and tell us (their parents) about Calvin's antics over and over. They want to play Calvin Ball and make their own snowman house of horrors.

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.

Calvin and Hobbes is one of those stories that latches itself upon the imagination. It goes beyond the wit and appearance of the normal comic strip and projects a level of conscientiousness that hasn't been seen since Bill Watterson discontinued the strip in 1995. As an artist, I would say Watterson has probably done more for the arts than most people realize. The Tenth Anniversary Book certainly contains the high-points of one of the greatest artisans of comics and story-telling of the Twentieth Century. Thank you, Mr. Watterson, for one of the greatest pieces of art I have ever observed.

My 10 and 14 year old sons LOVE reading this and another Calvin and Hobbes book that we have every single night before bed. It is so fun to hear their giggles coming from the other room. I remember reading it when I was their age, so I love seeing the joy of these classic comics being passed on to another generation!

Odds are if you are thinking about buying this book then you are a Calvin and Hobbes already. But for those who have not discovered the joy that is Calvin and Hobbes I would encourage you to pick one of these up and enjoy a work that transcends "the funny papers" and could truly be described as art. These stories and characters offer commentary, insight, wit, and quite often elicit emotion from the reader. They have a depth and soul not found in other comic strips.

Seriously - how could you NOT love Calvin & Hobbes. My 7 year old is now reading Calvin & Hobbes, and it's the greatest thing ever. He may not get all the humor, but as a boy who has a beloved monkey he connects with Calvin's attachment with Hobbes on a very personal level. For me it's like going back to my high school and college years and rereading a loved cartoon.

I love C&H so no hate there.

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.

To give this book of wonderful stories of a boy and his stuffed tiger anything less than a 5 would be sacrilegious. Being born in the early 80's I was at a perfect age to go to bed as a young boy reading these great comics. I feel Calvin and Hobbes changed the way
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.
Great book, my 11 year old son loves it and reads it over and over. I hear him laughing all the time.
