"Something Under The Bed Is Drooling" was originally published back in 1988. This entertaining book contains numerous cartoons from the ever-popular "Calvin and Hobbes" comic strip which was created by American artist, Bill Watterson.

For anyone who's not at all familiar with what "Calvin and Hobbes" is all about - Here's a brief outline of what one can expect to find in this volume.... This cartoon follows the often-humorous adventures (both real and fantasized) of Calvin, a precocious, mischievous and very outspoken 6-year-old rugrat, and his sardonic, stuffed tiger, Hobbes.

Together these 2 rascals (especially Calvin) get themselves into all sorts of comical predicaments that cover such broad issues as public education, philosophical quandaries, environmentalism, and flaws of opinion polls (to name but a few).

*Trivia note* - At the height of its phenomenal popularity - "Calvin and Hobbes" was featured in over 2400 newspapers, worldwide.

Other people in the comments think this is for people who are six and older, but they are wrong. Calvin and Hobbes has a lot of jokes that only adults or kids with big vocabularies would understand. I recommend the collection "There's Treasure Everywhere". If you want a Calvin and Hobbes book that is better for younger kids, you should get "The Calvin and Hobbes Lazy Sunday Book". I own that on and enjoy it. Thanks for reading this!
