    Summary

    Milly's proposal is the first and the hardest. "My name's Milly," she says, her hands knuckled out of sight in the pockets of her buckskin jacket. They've met once. She thinks - she hopes they might learn to trust each other. "I've got a farm up the mountain. Got sheep, hogs, fifty acres of good arable. How about it?"

    Summary

    You don’t just up and marry someone you met not a half hour ago, even if he’s got an easy smile and kettle-bright hair and shoulders wider than the Rockies and- and brown eyes that crinkle at the corners, like he’s laughing a little. Oh help.

    (What if Milly had learned the truth a little earlier?)

    Summary

    The lesson here, Susie thinks, is that tricking Death is tricky business. How do you outwit the personification of oblivion? Chess, obviously, won’t be the answer.

    Summary

    No matter how little we desire it, someday every wild, creative, imaginative child must grow up. Well, he's gotta get taller. There ain't a damned thing anyone can do if he refuses to completely mature. And there are some places, some jobs, some lives, where a little imaginative flexibility can be an advantage rather than a disadvantage.

    Calvin, accompanied as ever by Hobbes, may just find such a place.
