Staff Reviews

What happens when you pick up a book and start chuckling right away, smiling ear to ear, so drawn in that you can't stop? You know you have a winner of a book! And... when you discover that it is just Book ONE in a series.... YIPPEEEE! Fans of Calvin and Hobbs will get a kick out of this series. We love it, especially for any reluctant reader in your life. And just to save you from saying it the wrong way, it is pronounced "High Low" (not like Hilo Hatties).
