    I received an advanced reading copy of this book, from the publisher (ECW Press), in exchange for my honest feedback.

    An entertaining and informative read about the creation of everyone’s favourite comic, Calvin & Hobbes. More than just a biography of the comic’s creator (Bill Watterson) - this book takes you through the comic’s evolution - and explores why we all loved Calvin & Hobbes so much.

    Let's Go Exploring: Calvin and Hobbes was an entertaining and informative book for me since, although I very much enjoy Calvin and Hobbes, I didn't discover it until well after its newspaper run had ended (I didn't learn to read until about halfway through it, and we were overseas for the rest).

    A great, short read about the advent of Calvin & Hobbes, stories of its creator, brief tellings of its impact on our culture, and our fasciation with both the author and his creation. I don't really know anyone who doesn't treasure the old comic strip, and Hingston is inviting us along to analyze, remember, and appreciate it for what it is, and not what we think it should be.

    Naturally, due to the iron grip Watterson has on C&H, don't expect any animated examples in the book, but please
