Blogging From A to Z Challenge - S

This will be a walk down memory lane, so to speak. The majority of the books I will be blogging about were acquired during my son's childhood. I will be blogging about children's, MG, and Tween books that are on the bookshelves, with a few being found on the Kindle for PC. The titles will either have words that correspond with the letter of the day, will be on a topic that corresponds with the letter of the day or both. As I'm finding a couple of the letters a bit challenging, I may need to borrow a book or two from the library to complete the challenge.

Today is Saturday, April 21st.  It is the 19th day of the Blogging From A to Z Challenge.  Today's letter is S.

Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons

A Calvin and Hobbs Collection by Bill Watterson

Paperback, Published Jan. 1992

The Calvin and Hobbes
Lazy Sunday Book

A Collection of Sunday Calvin and Hobbes Cartoons by Bill Watterson

Paperback, Published Jan. 1989

My son received this as a Christmas gift in 2005

The comic strips were about a young boy, with an overactive imagination, and his real-only-to-him tiger.

QUESTION OF THE DAY:  Did you ever read the Calvin and Hobbes comic strips?


  1. Calvin and Hobbes are the best!!! Love them :)

  2. Hi Susanne, I did read the C&H comic strip.

  3. I love Calvin and Hobbes!!!!! Love 'em, love 'em! I have never seen the Lazy Sunday book. I would love to get my hands on a copy. :-)

  4. Nope, I can't say that I have read any Calvin and Hobbes comic strips but I am familiar with the brand. Charlie Brown, Garfield and independent comics from little known artists are comics that I would be likely to read...if I were to read them.

    I've never been much of a comic book or comic strip fan but I did have a copy of X-Men when I was a kid, lol.

  6. We love Calvin and Hobbes, thanks for the memories!

    All the best,

  7. I used to live for Calvin and Hobbes.

    My 12 yo has both of those books. :)

  8. I've never read these before, but they look like cute stories. Julie

  9. I lived for Calvin and Hobbes! So sad that he stopped drawing them.

  10. I never read much Calvin and Hobbes and never cared for it, but maybe I just didn't understand what was going on and lacked the patience to pursue it. I don't think I was reading many comics when that strip was in the paper.
