Hobbes (whom I made for my now 4mo nephew) came back this weekend for an inpatient procedure; one of his ears was coming off. It is good that Hobbes is so well loved 🥰 And because it‘s been so cold here, I made him a little scarf as well 😊

I have a new nephew and his name is Calvin, so of COURSE I had to knit him a Hobbes. Hobbes turned out so well though that I am going to have a hard time giving him away 🤣🤣

This book series is a CLASSIC. If your looking for a great comic book to read, Calvin and Hobbes is for you! I love how wholesome this book is. Calvin and his stuffed tiger just kind of make me forget about the real world when I‘m reading it. I would give this book a strong 10/10. It‘s great.

Cfischbuch You have great taste, I too love this series. Pure, laughable escapism into childhood. 1y

Calvin and Hobbes has tugged at my heart since I was little. We even used Calvin and Hobbes as the theme in our little one's nursery a couple of years ago. Calvin and Hobbes shows us what true friendship is as they stand united throughout (for the most part).

I have always loved Calvin and Hobbes. When the comics were originally published in the newspaper they were the first thing I read whenever I picked up a paper. Never missed a Calvin and Hobbes.

readingjedi My late dad used to laugh so much reading this cartoon. He loved it when Calvin was Stupendous Man! 3y

1. The Complete Calvin and Hobbes. Not really my all-time favorite, but the one that is currently helping me deal with the madness of the world right now.
2. How do you choose between Calvin and Hobbes?! Besides, any choice would tell you way too much about me.
3. The teacher, Miss Wormwood.
4. Calvin‘s time machine, of course.
5. @Erinreadsthebooks Thanks @Graywacke

Several years ago, my friend and I saw a Complete Calvin and Hobbes at a garage sale for $50. We might have been able to put together the money, but we had no way of carrying it home, so we left it behind. We've regretted this ever since.

In November, my friend and another friend were at Costco of all places and they had C&H for a good price. So they bought two copies, and gave me one for my birthday 😊

saresmoore What a great gift! 4y

#QuotsyMay18 | May 1: purpose

“I‘ve been thinking, Hobbes.”
“On a weekend?”
“Well, it wasn‘t on purpose.”

I ❤️ Calvin & Hobbes. And I had such fun with the April #quotsy challenge, I did a brief recap on my blog: http://wanderinglynn.com/2018/04/30/quotsy-april-recap/

Calvin and Hobbes are my guaranteed happy reads. I keep the books at my parents' place and usually read two or three per visit. Someday I will own the complete set!

night_shift Me too! We've got a small collection of the books going :) 5y
rabbitprincess @BarbaraTheBibliophage Yay! I have also found that most situations are improved by an appropriate C&H quote 😄 @UnidragonFrag My favourite is the 10th anniversary book, which has so much good commentary! 5y

'What on earth have I ordered that weighs 7.48kg?' is the question I asked myself as I lugged my parcel back to my car after collecting it from the post office in ridiculous summer weather... The complete Calvin & Hobbs! Huzzah! I'd completely forgotten about it!

Nothing cheers me up more than the unconditional friendship between an imaginary tiger and a perspicacious little boy.. We all need a Hobbes in our life :)
