    Calvin and Hobbes was my generations' reason to read the newspaper, and Michael Hingston examines why. This book kept me reading way past bedtime. It made me happy/sad. Let's Go Exploring is written conversationally which I really appreciated. He captures all the whimsy and yes, the sa...

    Our family are all huge Calvin and Hobbes fans so having the opportunity to read and review Lets Go Exploring was really amazing. I appreciate Michael Hingston and all his efforts to put the new perspective on one of the most loved comic strips of all time. I hope the word has gotten o...

    I have been a long-time fan of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, just like the book asserts many people are. No one actively dislikes the comic and it?s easy to see why. With its layered look at the world and its ability to stretch the imagination, the comic allowed us to escape rea...

    I received a digital copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I've read previous entries in the Pop Classics series and really enjoyed them - it gives you a slim, in-depth look at the deeper meaning and legacy a piece of pop culture might have had. Calvin and Ho...

    I received a free copy of this in exchange for a fair review from NetGalley. I really enjoyed this book. I'd previously read Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip by Nevin Martell, and I was a little hesitant to r...

    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 (B...

    The trouble with this book is that it instilled an instant, insistent urge in me to run out and buy the definitive box set special edition of Calvin and Hobbes and read nothing else for the next week. This books does a couple of things, and all of them well: it?s a history of Cal...

    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 ...

    At one time, before the advent of that internet thing, we all read newspapers, pretty much everyday. And, on Sundays, we devoted hours to going through all the Sunday sections, most particularly, everyone's favorite section - the Sunday funnies. Nowadays newspapers barely exist and the...

    A very enjoyable retrospective on Calvin and Hobbes and the man behind the panels. In addition to the thorough yet very approachable analysis of various aspects of the strip, I especially enjoyed learning more about Mr. Watterson's post-C&H time, and the wide range of tributes to h...

    As an educational reference for the unforgettable Clavin and Hobbes, Let's Go Exploring gives a lot of background and explains why we lost Calvin and company too soon. If you are a casual fan, you won't like this book. This isn't some fun insight into the comics. At first, I was discou...

    I got a chance to peek under the hood at the newest Calvin and Hobbes book? So, it?s more of a Bill Watterson book than a Calvin and Hobbes book, but I was excited nonetheless. Michael Hingston?s Let?s Go Exploring is an interesting peek at the inner battles between the famousl...

    I?m glad I came across this book. It?s a great little overview of Calvin and Hobbes and its history. Like millions of others, I love Calvin and Hobbes and it?s been important to me since I was a kid. While there aren?t a ton of new insights into the strip itself, this volume wa...

    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 a...

    My family and I were/are huge C/H fans. We bought our sons every book published and bought replacements when they wore out. So I am very enthusiastic about this book. The author has done his research and presents an entertaining and insightful book. Highly recommended. My thanks to Ne...
