cover of It's a Magical World

The ever-delightful, irrepressible Calvin & Hobbes. G. & I found this at a great price-- which I assume was because of the new hardcover complete Calvin & Hobbes that was recently made available. It's a treasure worth owning and reading and re-reading, because even after multiple readings I still find myself chuckling and even laughing out loud.

This collection includes Calvin's first finding Hobbes, his first meeting of Susie Derkins, the neighbor girl he loves to torment, along with several Spaceman Spiff fantasies and plenty of Calvin's crazy schemes, and some wacky and morbid snow art. Watterson's imagination is astounding, and his artistic realization of Calvin & Hobbes, and their many adventures, are always delightful.
