Guest Book Review by Micah! – Calvin and Hobbes

Today I have another AWESOME guest kid book reviewer – MICAH! Micah is ten years old and he is also a kid blogger! He and his brother, Taylor are “The Story Boys”! You can check out their blog HERE. Micah is also the son of children’s novelist Michelle Isenhoff (a pretty talented family huh? 🙂 )!

I really like the book Micah chose to review because it is also one of my favorite books/characters!

Calvin and Hobbes

by Bill Watterson

Andrews McMeel Publishing, LLC 1987

This is a comic book.  There are a bunch of stories in one.  The stories are funny.  The characters are Calvin and Hobbes.  Calvin is a little rotten boy.  Hobbes is a stuffed animal tiger.  He comes to life when he is alone.  They like to play pirates in their tree house. They love to have wagon rides and they always wipe out.  He gets in trouble a lot.


I love how Calvin is so funny and naughty.  I love how Calvin hates baths and he gets out and runs around naked.  He also hates the doctor and he screams his head off.  I don’t like all the snow ball fights and how he thinks he is a super hero.  I recommend this book.


Five out of five bookworms!


Thanks Micah for the great review!!

  3. My husband has quite a collection of comic books, including Calvin and Hobbes. My five-year-old recently pulled one of the books off the shelf, and he loved it. Of course, his games often remind me of Calvin’s. 27th base anyone?

  4. Thanks for inviting Micah to guest post, Erik. He’s so proud. Both boys read it this morning and were picking their favorite Calvin faces, lol. Then they left me to comment so they can get their schoolwork done and go play. Tomorrow’s our LAST DAY!
