Review quote

"Bill Watterson talks: This is why you must read the new 'Exploring Calvin and Hobbes' book ... For any true fan of cartooning, it is a must-read, a must-buy, a must-pick-up ...

"Bill Watterson has delivered a gift, a trip down memory lane that is populated densely on each side with personal and professional insights - some grippingly specific, some that ring universal, many that resonate as both." (Michael Cavna, The Washington Post) "America's Most Profound Comic Strip" (Christopher Caldwell, The Wall Street Journal)
