Calvin is a hero to all nonconformists, may he never grow up

If you remember your childhood, you will understand the aptness of the title. Many things, such as rocks, snake skins and twigs are some of the most valuable items you can ever possess. Calvin, being the inquisitive and imaginative boy that he is, can find treasure and adventure in places where other children cannot. That is demonstrated once again in this collection of captions from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip.
Calvin is my all time favorite fictional child because he is so imaginative, even though that trait gets him into deep trouble with every adult he encounters. He is also the type of child that will grow up to be an historic nonconformist, someone who will see things so differently that he will change the world.
Down through history, many of the people who actively changed the world were problem children. Let us hope that Calvin is a virtual inspiration to many children in that it will help them to understand that sometimes being different is being best.
