Quite a number of worthy-mention friendships in books, I‘ll choose to highlight Calvin and Hobbes. Though an imaginary one, it summarises the perfect friendship a child can wish for... someone to share your hobby and secrets, and a great pal in mischief and slumber.
Is it wrong that we measure every situation by how much reading time it will afford us? 😜
More Calvin & Hobbes fun always brightens my day. More of all the things that make this strip so great-demented snowmen, philosophy for the ages, space travel, dinosaurs, and a friendship for the ages. These strips never get old 💜
My best friend texted this to me yesterday. We have an ongoing debate about the value of libraries...she no longer used them because she returns books so late, she could just buy them with her late fees. 🙄
(Inspired by @Tanisha_A ‘s recent Calvin & Hobbes post ❤️)
"On gray days, when it's snowing or raining, I think you should be able to call up a judge and take an oath that you'll just read a good book all day, and he'd allow you to stay home." - Bill Watterson
Oh #babyitscoldoutside, in the #winterwonderland
So let's crack a book (or many) open, and travel to the unknown land!
"For some time, I've used Calvin's snowmen as a way to make fun of the art world. I enjoy studying art, but the field certainly attracts it's share of pretentious blowhards." - Bill Watterson
#FrostytheSnowman reminds me of snowmen tableaus by Calvin the Great. #WinterWonderland
After a rousing game of Monopoly, Lucy and Hobbes have settled in for a nice dinner. Not pictured: Elliott, the bumble bee dragon (her own creation) charring her meal for that extra crispy dragon flavor. Who says the domestic life has to be boring?
This little rocket has guts! 😂
It's been a while! #DailyCalvinandHobbes
When Lucy (Calvin) leaves her stuff strewn around the house, I gather everything on the stairs for her to put away. I think I inadvertently created a scene here. Captions welcome.
Happy Birthday Maggie! It won‘t let me tag you for some reason. I don‘t often register acts that I do that would be considered kind, just because it‘s who I am. I‘m kind just because 😅 But I do remember about a week ago I was at my library browsing the shelves and I overheard a little boy asking his mom for a Calvin and Hobbes book. She said she didn‘t know where to find them and told him to hurry up. I didn‘t think much of it until👇🏻
