I visit schools all the time with Mom & Dad to do our anti-bullying presentations and read my book, “Hobbes Goes Home.” Sometimes animals shouldn’t go to school.

This statement is so

Mom is hanging out on her chaise

I think my Dad needs a vacation, he’s been a little grumpy lately. Mom and I think a week at the beach will give him a much-needed rest. Dad’s always cranky when he has to spend money, so while he’s resting, we’ll also be doing software updates to make “Bruce & Hobbes Radio” sound even better! Mom’s got some plans too. Her friends are coming over, and they’ll be fixing our studio so it looks great!
