Review quote

No one has captured children's world view and sense of imagination in cartoon strip form as well as Watterson. Nor applied it so strikingly to comment on adult life and attitudes or the general absurdity of the world in which we live Much will strike a chord and raise a knowing smile at their perception, but above all, they are very, very funny. - MIDWEEK
