Let's go exploring!24 Jul 2006
Thanks to Andrea, we found that Amazon.de is offering The Complete Calvin and Hobbes for just EUR 63.89, less than half the list price. So we got one. At 10 kg, it's not light reading, but it's everything a Calvin and Hobbes fan could hope for (short of a rivival of the daily comic strip).
Calvin and Hobbes has (for now) replaced Harry Potter as Christopher's bedtime reading (with on-the-fly translation by Papa). Since he's Calvin's age, I think he sees the stories not so much as humor than as absolute truth.
