In 2003, I bought the omnibus edition of ‘The Indispensable Calvin & Hobbes‘ as a birthday gift for my husband. It was sheer pleasure to know that we shared a common love for this delightful comic strip. Earlier this week, my 10-year-old pulled it out of her bookshelf and settled down to read.
Within minutes, she was chuckling as the mirth from the pages translated into hilarity in her mind. The room, her face and my heart were all filled with gladness as the humour spread its touch almost imperceptibly.
