"This book captures the joy and excitement at first discovering Calvin and Hobbes, and the wistful sadness that it is no more."
—Patton Oswalt

"Hingston does a great job of reconnecting, or introducing, readers to the poplar comic strip and articulating the magnetism of its characters and key moments in Calvin and Hobbes’s history... [a] smart, lively critique."
Booklist

A fascinating investigation of a beloved comic strip

The internet is home to impassioned debates on just about everything, but there’s one thing that’s universally beloved: Bill Watterson’s comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. Until its retirement in 1995 after a ten-year run, the strip won numerous awards and drew tens of millions of readers from all around the world. The story of a boy and his best friend — a stuffed tiger — was a pitch-perfect distillation of the joys and horrors of childhood, and a celebration of imagination in its purest form. In Let’s Go Exploring, Michael Hingston mines the strip and traces the story of Calvin’s reclusive creator to demonstrate how imagination—its possibilities, its opportunities, and ultimately its limitations—helped make Calvin and Hobbes North America’s last great comic strip.
